A one-day *in-house* event providing expert advice on the complex and confusing implications of the GDPR and the new Data Protection Act.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a major new piece of legislation which came into force across the EU on 25 May 2018. It provides a single data protection law for the whole EU. It is Brexit- neutral in that the government has said it will apply in the UK even after Brexit through the new Data Protection Act. The new stringent data protection requirements apply to all organisations in the EU (and it is even extra-territorial in that it also applies to many organisations entirely outside of the EU).
The GDPR implements a raft of new rights for individuals and how their personal data is processed – and processing includes every activity known to man: reading, storing, manipulating, transferring – even possessing.
Every business now uses personal data in some way, whether staff data, customer data, prospect data or supplier data. And there’s plenty more data too. The maximum penalties for getting it wrong have been increased to the greater of 4% of annual global group turnover of an organisation or 20 million Euros, depending on the severity of the breach. The definitions of ‘personal data’ sometimes even applies when that data appears to be anonymised. It is essential to know what the law requires – as it should now be part of ‘Business as Usual’ for every business worldwide.
