GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) WORKSHOP

February 27 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

£120
GDPR

GDPR OR General Data Protection Regulation is effective from Spring 2018.

 Are you ready to start making changes so that you are compliant?

 

GDPR – What is it?

GDPR applies to any organisation operating within the EU, as well as any organisations outside of the EU which offer goods or services to customers or businesses in the EU. That means most businesses who deal with any type of data.

If you are currently subject to the UK’s Data Protection Act, for example, it’s likely you will have to look at GDPR compliance too.

GDPR places legal obligations on businesses to maintain records of personal data and how it is processed, providing a much higher level of legal liability should the organisation be breached.

When does GDPR come into force?

GDPR will apply across the European Union from 25 May 2018, and all member nations are expected to have transferred it into their own national law by 6 May 2018.  Brexit will not affect how GDPR will be implemented in the UK.

Do we need to appoint a Data Protection Officer?

Under the terms of GDPR, an organisation must appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) if it carries out large-scale processing of special categories of data or who carries out large scale monitoring of individuals such as behaviour tracking or if they are a public authority.

While it isn’t mandatory for organisations to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO), all organisations will need to ensure they have the skills and staff necessary to be compliant with GDPR legislation.

There’s no set criteria on who should be a DPO or what qualifications they should have, but according to the Information Commissioner’s Office, they should have professional experience and data protection law proportionate to what the organisation carries out.

Failure to appoint a data protection officer, if required to so by GDPR, could result in a fine.
