General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulations in 20 years. We’re hosting a free refresher course for our Marble Arch London businesses. This course is suitable for anyone responsible for handling personal data.
Following the new data protection rules enforced on 25 May 2018, the Information Commissioner has seen an increase in the number of complaints to its office, and more breach notifications. It seems many organisations are still struggling to implement a successful compliance program. They think they are on the right track but many are inadvertently making mistakes due to widespread misconceptions.
In this interactive half day training we explore the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Specifically, why the GDPR is not a tick box exercise, why it is crucial to be compliant and remain compliant, why personal information may be the new ‘gold’, what impact a breach will have on you and your company, the role of the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and what are those cyber criminals up to now?
25 May 2018 was the start of a long journey to improve how organisations in the UK and Europe manage personal data. And it’s here to stay – regardless of Brexit.
By the end of this training you will be able to:
- Understand the key aspects of the GDPR and the UK Data Protection Act 2018
- Assess the impact on you and your company if you are not meeting the regulation
- Identify ways you can keep the costs of compliance low and balance this with why GDPR compliance is crucial to your business
- Adopt a stress-free approach to the management of subject access requests, right to be forgotten etc.
- Explain what opportunities are that the GDPR presents for your business and how can you maximise them without being buried in paperwork?
