GDPR / DPA2018 Bootcamp – Wed 20th June

Are you an SME Business Owner and/or Data Protection Lead who are still not totally “up-to-speed” and business ready with your new legal obligations on processing the personal data of UK and EU citizens?

Relax and Don’t Panic – we’ve got it covered with our half-day intensive workshop to speed up the process!

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation and the UK Data Protection Act 2018 commenced on 25th May 2018, however it’s not too late to start your data protection action plans and implementation process in your business.

Elizabeth Denham, the UK’s Information Commissioner, stated in her “Beyond 2018 – data protection laws built to last” blog of 23 May:

“The creation of the Data Protection Act 2018 is not an end point, it’s just the beginning, in the same way that preparations for the GDPR don’t end on 25 May 2018. From this date, we’ll be enforcing the GDPR and the new Act but we all know that effective data protection requires clear evidence of commitment and ongoing effort.

It’s an evolutionary process for organisations – no business, industry sector or technology stands still. Organisations must continue to identify and address emerging privacy and security risks in the weeks, months and years beyond 2018.”

Our workshop is jam-packed with discussions and activities, supported with key information and resources – including GDPR guidance, checklists, and sample policy and processing templates.  You will also develop your GDPR action plans so that you can begin (or continue) your GDPR implementation back in your business.  The workshop will look at some of the key GDPR areas, including:

  • Documenting your Records of Processing Activities
  • Legal basis for processing (incl. consent v legitimate interest for direct marketing)
  • Privacy notices – what you need to include
  • Relationship with other businesses – joint data controllers, data processors, data sharing (incl. contracts with data processors)
  • Security of processing
  • How to deal with personal data breaches
  • Data Protection policies
  • How to deal with subject access requests

Prior to the workshop it would be helpful if you could complete the ICO GDPR self-assessments that are relevant to your business.  This will help highlight areas of work you still need to do and give you an opportunity to highlight your specific challenges at the workshop.

Previous delegates have described our GDPR Readiness workshops as Practical – Informative – Intense – Interesting – Productive – Helpful.  All delegates have highlighted the event as “very valuable” with “very valuable activities”, summed up by a delegate as “Great to have the opportunity to discuss real issues in an informal environment.”
