Description

RIBA GDPR CPD: guidance on the new requirements for handling data

Replacing the Data Protection Act 1998, the GDPR requires every business, large or small, that processes personal data to be compliant with the new rules from 25 May 2018. The changes have been described as an “evolution not a revolution”. As businesses, you will have to review your practices to be able to show you have complied with the new requirements for handling data. The new rules also introduce enhanced rights and tougher penalties for any failings. This seminar aims to help you identify what are the areas of risk and practical steps you will need to take.

This seminar will cover:

Introduction:

  • What is GDPR and the changes from the DPA obligations

Main changes to data protection:

  • What information is covered
  • Personal data and “special category” data
  • New rules for handling data
  • New rules for seeking consent
  • Individuals’ rights over their data
  • Reporting and penalties

Preparation for new data rules:

  • How do businesses show they have complied?
  • Review what data you have and sources
  • Updating privacy
  • Keeping data safe
  • Preparing for the “what if” scenarios

Useful sources of information:

  • Information commissioner ico.org.uk
  • OJEU Reg 2016/679 (GDPR)
  • Gov.uk/data-protection

Speaker

Howard Lewis-Nunn, No15 Chambers

Qualified as a barrister, Howard has almost 20 years’ experience advising on employment law. His clients range from owner-managed enterprises, professional practices, international businesses to individuals. He is registered with the Bar Council for public access work, so he can be instructed directly without a solicitor. With his pragmatic approach he seeks to find commercial solutions for clients. He has gained extensive experience of all aspects of the employment relationship and so is able to give practical advice on the issues that may arise beyond employment law, such as data protection and the Bribery Act. As well as representing clients in employment tribunals and courts, he also provides training on current topics to help employers manage their workplace effectively.
