The National Association of Data Protection and Freedom of Information Officers (NADPO) is running a one day conference on the recently announced General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and DPA.
Speakers and topics are:
Iain Bourne, ICO, Group Manager: GDPR
Claire Miller, Data Journalist, on journalism vs privacy (http://www.walesonline.co.uk/authors/claire-miller/)
Andrew Charlesworth, University of Bristol Law School, on the development of international DP regimes (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/law/research/researchprofiles/charlesworth.html)
Mark Fraser, National Police Chiefs Council, on the new regs and law enforcement and the new s.29
Jen Persson, Coordinator of defenddigitalme, on the National Pupil Database and fair processing, (http://defenddigitalme.com and on twitter @TheABB)
Patrycja Duszynska, Chair of IRMS Wales, on influencing senior colleagues to move from DP to GDPR (http://www.irms.org.uk/groups/cymru-wales)
As usual, there will be plenty of time for networking, questions and an excellent lunch.
Free to members (or you can nominate someone to come in your place - please have details ready if you are coming instead of a member as we will ask at the door). Small number of free places for IRMS or DP Forum members (on a first come, first served basis).
As this is the first event in Cardiff, on this occasion we are making a small number of tickets available at no cost for non-members. Otherwise tickets are usually £50 for non-members.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
@nadponews or email@example.com
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
If you are a member, we will tick your name off a list.
If you are an IRMS or DP Forum member, a ticket would be helpful, or just let us know about your membership. We will check this with those organisations.
If you are a paying non-member, please do bring your ticket.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
That is fine as we are happy with substitutions. However, if you are a substitute for an IRMS or DP Forum member, you must also be an IRMS or DP Forum member.
How do I book a substitute in my place in case I cannot make it?
This is fine - just book the ticket in your own name and pass the details onto your colleague, who can attend in your place.
My membership recently expired and employer is going to pay soon. Can I attend?
Yes, but please let us know.
Can I attend for part of the day only?
Yes, but please be mindful that ticket and places are limited - if you can only come for an hour or two, this may deprive someone else of a whole day of fantastic learning.
What food options are available?
There are vegetarian and non-veg options. However, if you have an allergy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do what we can to accommodate you.
Why are the tickets for non-members not exactly £50?
The tickets are a little more than £50 as there are fees to be paid via Eventbrite and Paypal. If you wish to pay on the day, this can be done by cash only (we can email you a receipt). However, priority will be given to non-members who have paid in advance.
Do you offer CPD points?
Sorry, not yet. But we are working on this.
Do you publish a list of delegates?
No, but there is plenty of time to network and get to know others.
Who will be there?
Privacy, information governance and DP/FOI professionals from across public, private and third sectors
Where can I park/can you advise on travel arrangements/hotels?
There is no onsite parking available. There is a nearby carpark, details of which are at https://www.ncp.co.uk/find-a-car-park/car-parks/cardiff-knox-road/.
The venue is about a 15 minute walk from Cardiff Central. You can also take a 5 minute train ride from Cardiff Central to Cardiff Queens Street Station (which is a five minute walk away - trains between Central and Queen Street are pretty frequent).
Taxis from Cardiff Central are about £5-6.
