MIY Masterclass – General Data Protection Regulation is coming…

October 26, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

£10 – £20

The Government has confirmed the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will apply in the UK from 25th May 2018 so it’s now more important than ever to ensure your business is ready for the change.

Just as you thought you’re on top of it all, new requirements come along! So, it’s essential you ensure how to obtain, use and keep the personal data of your staff, clients, customers and suppliers and do so within the relevant legal frameworks. The new GDPR sees some big changes in data protection law that have an impact on how you gather and use personal data, which is why there is a 2 year transition in place from the old to the new. There are now less than 18 months left of this transition period.

This GDPR masterclass will help you understand the changes you need to make within your business to be ready for when GDPR becomes directly applicable. The workshop will look at:

  • The principles and lawfulness of processing personal data
  • Your obligations along with those who you sub-contract work to
  • Security of personal data and the reporting of data breaches
  • The role of the data protection officer within your business
  • Rights of individuals and how these impact your business

If you gather and use personal data then attendance at this GDPR Masterclass is essential.

Certainly if your business undertakes large scale processing of personal data such as insurance brokers, accountants, medical professions (GP practices, etc.), schools and colleges. It will also be applicable to IT businesses, and professionals in marketing and HR.

Don’t get caught out, the GDPR specifically states the requirements of the role of the Data Protection Officer and others with data protection responsibilities and their reporting requirements.
