GDPR for journalists – the new e-learning course is online!

Since the entry into force of the Basic Data Protection Regulation, journalists and bloggers have been very uncertain as to what they have to pay attention to in order to be able to continue working in a legally compliant way and, above all, in a GDPR compliant manner.

In principle, journalistic activities do not fall within the scope of the new General Data Protection Regulation, as they are protected by the so-called media privilege. However, this does not mean that no responsibility for data protection should be assumed. Rather, the press has set up its own supervisory bodies and is therefore committed to data protection.

Journalists are therefore faced with numerous questions:
When do I have to comply with GDPR as a journalist? When is my activity no longer protected by the media privilege? When may data be processed? Which rights and sanctions must be observed? Which data protection regulations must I observe if I am not bound by the GDPR (and when is this the case at all)?

To remove these uncertainties from journalists and other media professionals, lawpilots have created a special course: The e-learning course “Data protection for journalists” (currently only available in German) teaches the requirements of GDPR in the context of media privilege. The course is suitable for journalists, bloggers, influencers, freelance editors, photographers, public relations staff, press companies and all other media professionals who process data for journalistic and editorial purposes.
