Data Protection Act 2018 (GDPR) – Workshop

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May 2018.

The new legislation is an overhaul of legal requirements and must be met by any organisation involved in the handling or personal or personal sensitive data.

There are significant penalties for non-compliance, including a fine of up to €20m (approx. £17 million) or 4% of group annual global turnover for serious breaches.

Read our news about ‘how this will affect schools‘.

You will have to comply with the GDPR regardless of your size of business, if you process ‘personal data’, which means any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified. How this information is collected, stored, used, transported, shared and disposed is covered by this legislation.

To make sure you stay compliant with the new legislation, we have launched a new workshop, which will be an interactive one-day course with opportunities to assess your current situation and compliance with GDPR. The workshop will also cover areas to be aware of, how the GDPR integrates with the new Data Protection Act 2018 and offer examples best practice.

It is open to all organisations and best suited to any member of the organisation whose role covers handling personal data. We would also recommend any Data Protection Officers or Information Governance Leads who may wish to discuss how to apply the legislation and interpret it.

Tutors

The course is delivered by Data Protection expert, Gary Baker, who is a retired police superintendent, an accredited Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO) and senior decision-maker in high profile police disclosures. An experienced member of, and contributor to Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conferences (MARAC) and Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA).
