3rd GDPR Employee Data Conference for Employers: An Essential Update

London, Venue TBC

The implementation of the GDPR in May 2018 has forced employers to rethink how they process and store data, and in some cases, to transform workplace culture in order to comply. 

Registration fee: £395 + VAT

All dates and locations:

Wednesday 16th October - London

Employees and other staff members are increasingly aware of their Data Protection rights, and the numbers of staff, consultants and agency workers requesting SARs is increasing. Does your HR function have the knowledge and policy to manage this? Most organisations still need to learn how to minimise the costs and difficulties of managing SARs.

The ICO is recording a huge rise in complaints, and the punitive measures for non-compliance are serious. Alongside sizable fines, there is also the risk of prosecution and damage to your organisation’s reputation and shareholder value.

This event, building on several year’s delivery of successful GDPR preparation events, draws on unparalleled expertise and experience in this tricky area to deliver a comprehensive programme to ensure your staff can spot potential data protection issues and implement solutions before the problem grows.
Attendees will learn how to avoid costly employment disputes and take steps to protect your organisation through a thorough review, preparation and implementation of workable policies.

This critical update follows 12 GDPR planning and preparation conferences for employers, and 8 workshops across the UK featuring the most respected practitioners and lawyers in this space.

What you will learn:

  • Key policy changes and a comprehensive checklist of potentially vulnerable areas
  • A thorough understanding of content, processing, transfer and disposal: have you done enough?
  • How to implement a data protection assessment
  • Clarification of difficult areas such as special categories, agency workers and consultants
  • Lessons from the latest cases and rulings: enforcement and compensation
  • Key technical measures to implement
  • How to plan for and respond to a data breach
  • A comprehensive policy and practice checklist you can implement in your own organisation
