Event description

Description

We are all very aware of the impending General Data Protection Regulations and have heard a great deal about their potential impact on all local authorities, which include parish meetings, parish councils, town and community councils. As the Bill continues to make its ponderous way through parliament and lobbyists continue to move for changes, we find ourselves in a difficult situation of not knowing precisely what to prepare for. We still have no definitive answers as to whether clerks can act as DPO’s or how this service might be provided and paid for if they can’t. It’s not a comfortable situation!

However we can work on getting our council information into shape, regardless of the decisions still to come. This workshop will help you identify what information you have. Following the 6 principles for the processing of data, fair and lawful, purpose, adequacy, accuracy, retention and rights, you will be a position to review all your data in its various formats. We will touch on IT security and what you should be doing now, to protect the digital information in your care as well as reviewing our paperwork and document stores.

You will leave knowing how to identify what you have, what to do with it and how to communicate this to your councillors and parishioners. You will also understand what a data breach is, the potential consequences and how to manage it. Then, when full clarity over GDPR emerges, you will be in a great shape to move forward.

The course will be presented by Mr John Fowler from GDPR-info. GDPR-info are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office and have over 50 years of experience working as data compliance specialists. Prepping your Data is an excellent companion course to our existing GDPR and FOI course as it deals with things you can be getting on with now! This course will be suitable for Clerks and Councillors within Town and Parish Councils.

Parking is available in the North Waterside Pay and Display Car Park adjacent to Judges Lodgings.
