Understanding GDPR, Data Use & Cyber Security for Businesses

Why should I go to this event?

If you store and/or process personal data and do not know where to start with GDPR compliance should be looking to attend this event. We will provide a brief overview of the GDPR for SME businesses. This is a great opportunity to get your GDPR compliance journey up and running. For example did you know:-

  • that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that comes into force on the 25th May 2018?
  • that this will apply to over 99% of businesses and charities in the UK?
  • how this applies to you and your business?
  • what you should and shouldn’t be doing regarding peoples data and it’s storage?

If the answer is no to the above, then our half day workshop will be ideal to get up to speed with the key facts and issues. We can help take out the dread and help you get your head around the basics. At our event you will find out what you need to do if you have employees or you collect any information on customers including, name, address, email, phone number. Being aware and taking sensible precautions now can help reduce the fear of fines substantial fines in the future.

Joe Cooksey, Digital Engagement Manager for Barclays, in this half day event will:

  • Guide you through the GDPR key points
  • Discuss how you can use your data and ensure you adhere to the rules
  • Cyber Security you should consider and be aware of.

What is GDPR and why do we need to comply?

The GDPR has been designed to enable Data Protection to keep up with the ever changing digital landscape we do business in. It is more extensive in scope and application than the current Data Protection Act (DPA). The Regulation extends the data rights of individuals, and requires organisations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data, and adopt appropriate technical and organisational measures.

The European Union (EU)’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will impose greater regulatory control over EU residents’ personal data and force all global organizations to significantly change the way they handle that data. The GDPR will apply in the UK from 25 May 2018. The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR. UK organisations that process the personal data of EU residents have only a short time to ensure that they are compliant.

How will GDPR impact my business?

This will affect organisations of any size that collect and/or process personal data of EU citizens, this can include names, phone numbers, addresses, IP Addresses, ethnicity, health data to give some examples. GDPR enables individuals to have control over their own personal data. This has been processed further to the large numbers and increases to data breaches in businesses and organisations.

One of the main changes in the GDPR that organisations must consider across their operations is that the burden of proof to demonstrate compliance with the GDPR rests with the company providing services to the end user ‘the data subject’. Examples of the considerations a business will need to consider under the new GDPR include:

  • They correctly handle employee and HR data
  • Data is collected via the website, sales and CRMs are stored, handled and processed in a compliant manner
  • That security systems and controls are documented and suitable and proportional
  • Processes are in place if a breach occurs
  • Ability to effect the ‘right to be forgotten’.
