Event description

Description

The General Data Protection Regulation (known as the GDPR) came into force on May 25th and is the biggest shake-up of privacy rules in twenty years - but don't panic! This half day workshop is designed to give you everything a small business or charity needs to get prepared and demonstrate your commitment to data protection.


  • The new rules - explained in simple language - and why they're so important
  • Practical advice on how to implement them and keep personal data secure
  • Sample templates, policy documents and guidance to take away that will get you started quickly
  • Pointers to further reading, official advice and guidance as it's published by the EU and UK
  • Optional free e-mail updates to keep you aware of ongoing GDPR developments


Meet your trainer

Your course will be led by our principal trainer, Stewart Twynham. Stewart has worked in the fields of Information Security and Data Protection for over 20 years in the UK, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain and Germany. Over the last fifteen years, Stewart has written extensively for AccountingWEB and other online magazines. More recently Stewart has appeared on Scotland Tonight to explain the impact of the GDPR on the rights of individuals with Rona Dougall, as well as STV News.

  • An information asset register template
  • A sample Data Protection Policy
  • A sample Website Privacy Policy


In addition, attendees can also sign up for free exclusive e-mail updates which will keep you up to date on all developments and any new or updated advice as the GDPR rolls out.


Still concerned? Still needing help?

To help smooth the transition to GDPR, attendees can book a one day on-site consultation to iron out your issues at 50% off our normal rates. Details will be given during the workshop and includes on-site training.


What organisations are affected by the GDPR?

Any organisation that maintains data on clients, suppliers, patients, members, subscribers, employees or volunteers - that is any natural person - is affected by the new rules. That includes businesses, charities, social enterprises, clubs and societies.


Don't delay: the GDPR is now in force

Any business suffering a data breach or reported by a data subject regarding their rights will be in very serious trouble if it is found that they have not made a demonstrable commitment to the GDPR. This course is designed to bring you up to speed quickly, and give you what you need to get prepared, including all the the tools and pointers that will help you make the right decisions both now and into the future.
