GDPR Seminar

What is GPDR?

Coming into effect on 25 May 2018, GDPR will introduce a number of new data protection obligations for organisations and new rights for individuals. It is essential your company gets to grips with the changes and starts preparing now.

What does it mean for organisations?

These new rules will have a significant impact on how companies process data.

Individuals will gain:

  • the right to withdraw consent for the processing of their data
  • the right to be notified of a data breach
  • the right to know how their data will be used
  • the right to transfer their personal data to another provider
  • the “right to be forgotten”, i.e., for all their personal details to be deleted.

It is business critical to know how GDPR will affect your company – and what measures you need to take to ensure compliance and avoid penalties and fines. Our workshop will walk you through everything you need to know.

Marketing and GDPR

There is a belief that when GDPR is imposed on organisations on 25th May 2018, all marketing emails and telephone calls will stop.  Yes, it is certainly true that organisations need to take greater care, but the GDPR is not about stopping organisations from marketing its prospective clients.  This seminar will provide you with guidance on how to reach out to your future customers without breaching the GDPR.

What will the workshop cover?

  • An overview of GDPR and what is changing
  • An understanding of key definitions and scope
  • The definition of personal data under new legislation
  • How these changes affect data processing
  • Consent – what is consent, when it is necessary to obtain it and how to get consent
  • Other legal bases for processing data e.g. “legitimate interests”
  • The rights of individual data subjects
  • Profiling
  • Records of processing and database
  • Data processors and their obligations
  • How you engage with others in the supply chain e.g. vendors and umbrella companies
  • Data Protection Officers – do you need one? Their role, accountability and liability
  • Penalties for non-compliance with the GDPR.

You’ll walk away from our seminar with a clear practical understanding of what you need to do to prepare your business and staff for GDPR.
