EU GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation Masterclass
Wed 29 March 2017, 09:00 – 17:00 BST
The introduction of the EU GDPR regulations in May 2018 marks the biggest change in data protection law for 20 years. This includes: fewer data protection principles; the right to be forgotten; a new obligation to report data breaches; and an increase in fines of up to 4% of global turnover or €20m (whichever is greater). If your company holds data on any person that is an EU resident, then you must comply with GDPR.
Perpetuum Trainings compliance programme will help you and your organisation get ready for the General Data Protection Regulations and remain competitive in an ever-more challenging workspace.
Our comprehensive one-day workshop follows the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) 12 step compliance recommendations;
- Awareness - making sure that the key people in your organisation understand GDPR and its impact.
- Information Audit - recording what personal data you hold, where it came from and who you share it with.
- Communicating Privacy Information - reviewing your current privacy notices and planning out any necessary changes in time for GDPR implementation.
- Individuals’ Rights - Checking your procedures to ensure they cover all the rights individuals have, including how you would delete personal data or provide data electronically and in a commonly used format.
- Subject Access Requests - Updating your procedures and planning how you will handle requests within the new timescales and provide any additional information.
- Legal basis for processing personal data - examining the types of data processing you carry out and identifying your legal basis for carrying it out and document it.
- Consent - reviewing how you are seeking, obtaining and recording consent and whether you need to make any changes.
- Children - implementing systems to verify individuals’ ages and to gather parental or guardian consent for the data processing activity.
- Data breaches - establishing the correct procedures to detect, report and investigate a personal data breach.
- Data Protection by Design and Data Protection Impact Assessments - familiarising yourself now with the guidance the ICO has produced on Privacy Impact Assessments and work out how and when to implement them in your organisation.
- Data Protection Officers - designating a Data Protection Officer, if required, or someone to take responsibility for data protection compliance and assess where this role will sit within your organisation’s structure and governance arrangements.
