Event description

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has definitely made its mark on businesses and how they can store and use individual’s information; and now we’re beginning to see the first decisions and fines being imposed by the regulator.
GDPR is here to stay and will continue to affect any business that processes individuals’ data, whether customers (past, present and prospective), suppliers, employees or wider business contacts.
This session is made up of two sections:
• ‘Am I doing everything I need to?’ looks at systems, compliance and day to day examples. Rather than a theoretic look at the law, we’ll concentrate on the practical steps businesses should take initially, and how to ensure policies, processes and procedures remain up-to-date.
• The second half will be an interactive team-based session, examining recent real-life case studies, identifying what went wrong and considering the consequences.
By the end of the session, you will understand how a business can ensure continued compliance with the GDPR after having taken those initial steps, how to avoid the mistakes others have made, and an idea of the ‘value’ of different types of breaches.
