Event Details

Stephensons Solicitors LLP and Kings Chambers invites you to a specialist conference for the Health and social care sector in terms of how best to prepare for the GDPR.

 A practical guide to implementing the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") & maintaining effective compliance specifically for the education sector.

The GDPR will come into force in the UK on 25 May 2018. GDPR significantly strengthens the current law on data protection. The ICO will have the power to impose much greater financial penalties for non-compliance of up to 4% of your annual global or £17 million – whichever is greater.  All organisations that process personal data must be compliant.  They will also be required to actively demonstrate compliance with the new regulations. It is crucial that all organisations take action now in order to adequately prepare for GDPR as well as maintaining and demonstrating compliance from 25 May 2018 onwards.  This seminar will provide specific advice to organisations within the health and social sector as you prepare for GDPR. Our expert speakers will also look at how to maintain and demonstrate compliance with the new legislation so that you can be confident in your preparations and know exactly what to do in order to maintain your organisation’s compliance.
