Leadership Seminar: The Legalities of Data Protection: GDPR

Event on: 2018-February 15th 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Due to adverse weather, this session is postponed to Thursday 15 February 2018.

Leadership Seminar: Session 1 (Fully Booked)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to repeal and replace the Data Protection Act 1998 in May 2018.

The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR. It is intended that the GDPR will be incorporated into the UK’s domestic law under the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, currently before Parliament.

Although many of the fundamental principles established by the current Data Protection Act will remain the same, the new GDPR will set new standards for protecting personal data in the digital age (with increased penalties for those in default).

This seminar is aimed at any manager who has responsibility for dealing with the personal data of employees, clients, customers and suppliers. It will set out the steps an organisation needs to take to have an effective data governance programme in place, and thereby ensure compliance with the new legislation.
