Are you ready for the General Data Protection Regulation?
This is a Learn and Share Event
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the European Council and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU). It will come into force on 25 May 2018 and will affect the way organisations process personal identifiable information. Public sector organisations need to review and make necessary changes to current processes to ensure compliance by this date.
This Learn and Share event will be an opportunity for you to hear how other local public service organisations are getting ready and also share what your organisation is doing.
What's on the Agenda?
Andrew Rose, Information Commissioners Office will share a number of options organisations could consider when deciding how to implement the requirement for the Data Protection Officer role.
David Willis, Head of Information Governance, Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Trust will share how his organisation is preparing for GDPR and what steps are being taken to secure Senior Management Buy-In.
Other speakers to be confirmed shortly.
All delegates will be given the opportunity to ask questions and share their own views and experiences as part of the discussions on the day.
