“There’s a lot in the GDPR you’ll recognise from the current law, but make no mistake, this one’s a game changer for everyone.” – Elizabeth Denham, UK Information Commissioner
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become UK law in May 2018, introducing much stricter rules for the gathering and of storage sensitive data as well as increased powers for regulators. As the UK’s public sector holds everything from tax records to biometric data, it is crucial that organisations act now to ensure they are in line with the new legislation.
GDPR will introduce a series of stringent requirements around transparency and subject opt-ins with severe fines for organisations which fail to comply. Public bodies will also be required by law to appoint data protection officers and put strong measures in place to detect and report data breaches.
Join us for the GDPR in the Public Sector Conference where data experts will explain how the new rules will affect local government, the NHS and all public sector bodies.
Please register interest below and we will keep you updated
Topics covered on the day will include:
- What impact will GDPR have on your organisation?
- How will GDPR affect database management and data security requirements?
- How will the role of information officers evolve after the introduction of GDPR?
- How can organisations build their opt-in data?
- Which organisations have successfully drafted a GDPR project plan and what can be learned from these examples?
