The European Union General Data Protection Regulations (or the EU GDPR) will replace the current UK Data Protection Act. It will impact all organisations, regardless of size and sector and will determine how we manage data both online and offline. The current Data Protection legislation was launched in 1998 and the world has clearly progressed since then with new technologies (tablets, cloud storage), new ways of working (on / offsite) and a greater dependency on 3rd party providers for goods and services.
UK businesses will need to be compliant when the new legislation becomes law on 25th May 2018. This interactive workshop will use business scenarios to introduce the new legislation and will provide an overview of the steps that businesses will need to take to become complaint.
By the end of this workshop you will be able to:
- Understand what the EU GDPR is and why the law is changing
- Explain what has changed from the Data Protection Act 1998 and what is expected going forward
- Understand what the impact of the EU GDPR means for your business
- Know what you need to do to become compliant
- The new scope of the EU GDPR
- What are data subjects and their rights
- How does the EU GDPR impact businesses in terms of transparency and data usage
- What are the governance and compliance requirements
- How do I protect my business and the data held and used
- What steps do I need to take to be compliant
- Breach Notification
- Action Planning
