Event description


GDPR Update

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'.

Businesses will have to review their practices to be able to show they have complied with the new requirements for handling data. The new rules also introduce enhanced rights and tougher penalties for any failings. Preparing for the new data protection rules early will help businesses avoid the risk of complaints and fines. This seminar aims to help practices identify what are their areas of risk and practical steps they will need to take.

This seminar will cover:


  • Overview of obligations under GDPR

Points that have arisen under GDPR

  • Determing what is personal data
  • handling data
  • consent and transparency
  • Individuals’ rights over their data
  • Exemptions

Ensuring compliance

  • How do businesses show they have complied?
  • Review what data you have and sources
  • Reviewing and updating privacy policies and notices
  • Keeping data safe
  • Data protection by design and default
  • Guidance on Data Protection Impact Assessments
  • Handling and notifying breaches

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.
