Where to begin with GDPR?
For most business’s in the UK they are just starting to get their heads
around the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)due to come into effect by May next year. The headlines have mainly centred on the huge fines, that would just give Joe Public the opportunity to sue the Amazon’s of this world. The truth is that every company in the UK will have to change their operations, in some way, to comply with new regime. If you hold personal data on any system (whether digital or paper) you will have to prove that you are being responsible stewards of the information in your care.
What will be covered?
The seminar is presented in two sections:
Richard Mullett of The Legal Partners will present an overview of the regulatory framework including:
- Summary of the main points.
- Policies and procedures
- Difference between Data Controllers and Processors
- Subject Access Requests
- Right to be Forgotten
Malcolm Ford of IT Enterprise Business Solutions will run a practical interactive workshop covering.
- Preparing a data map.
- Getting an action plan in place.
- Issues with different types of software.
- Data purging.
The seminar will give you the building blocks of how to approach the task of getting your documentation, procedure, and systems in to shape. Ultimately this should not be seen as yet another compliance with regulation, but as a chance for companies to get their house in order and to operate more efficiently with the information they have in their possession.
This seminar will provide the participants with some of the tools they need to attempt this task.
Spaces are strictly limited.
A £20 will apply to cover wine or fruit drink, food and materials. For further information check our FAQ page
