Let’s Talk GDPR (Doncaster)
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) – The biggest overhaul of Data Protection Law in a generation – came into effect across the EU on 25 May 2018, and has been implemented in the UK by The Data Protection Act 2018. The new law brings a series of challenges for wide ranging businesses – and fines for non-compliance could be as much as €20,000,000 or 4% of annual turnover.
Our Masterclass looks at the key changes to The Data Protection Law that apply under the GDPR, a reminder of the obligations for compliance and provides updated guidance that has been produced post-May 2018. The Masterclass will include a legal update from Keebles LLP Solicitors, tips to get you well on the way to deciding what changes may still need to be made to be compliant with GDPR, and a specialist update on practical ways to ensure security of personal data.
The Masterclass will cover:
- What personal data is
- What individuals’ rights are in relation to their data
- How to process data lawfully
- How to keep proper records of your data processing
- How to respond to a data breach
- Potential security solutions
