OBJECTIVES

On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the biggest change in data protection law for 20 years, will come into effect. Will your business be ready? Getting ready for the GDPR is a ‘must’ for any firm, but what does that mean? The challenge of finding out what you need to do, even where you need to start, can seem huge. And finding the time and resource to do this (while continuing with ‘business as usual’) can seem like an overwhelming task. 

In practice, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ GDPR solution, and what you will need to do will vary depending on a number of factors, including:

  •  The extent to which you are compliant with the data protection laws currently in force and how sophisticated your business is with respect to data protection
  •  How much personal data you process and for which purposes, and how much of that is ‘special category’ (sensitive) personal data
  •  What policies and procedures you already have in place and how you document your data processing practices 
  •  Whether you use other organisations to process data for you 
  •  Whether you export personal data outside of the EEA

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Partners, directors, key decision makers and anyone else with a responsibility for, or interest in, avoiding a data breach – and risking a fine of up to €20million or 4% of turnover (whichever is the greater).

TOPICS: 

 The course will cover:

  •  Who does the GDPR apply to?
  •  What information does the GDPR apply to?
  •  The data protection principles & the new accountability requirement
  •  The new rights to be forgotten and data portability
  •  What is a personal data breach?
  •  What breaches have to be reported, when and how
  •  When can personal data be transferred outside the EAA?
  •  What information you will have to give to people when you collect their personal data  
  •  When you need to have people’s consent to use their personal data 
  •  When you can share personal data with third parties
  •  What you must do when using outsourced services
  •  The new rules about Subject Access Requests
  •  The lawful bases for processing personal data – and which ones to use
  •  What are Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs) and when do you need one?
  •  What are Data Protection Officers (DPOs) and when do you need one?
