All businesses use personal data gathered from customers, suppliers and colleagues in some way or another. It is in the interest of our companies and organisations to protect this data and keep it confidential in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that came into force on the 25th of May 2018.
The GDPR manages how our business and/or organisations use personal data, how they may collect the data, the situations in which they are permitted to use them, and for how long they can retain them. Moreover, the GDPR enhances the rights of individuals by furthering the rights associated with individuals’ personal data. It also covers the portability of data from one firm to another and encourages businesses to set up processes and products in a safe and proportional way. Penalties for non-compliance can be severe including significant fines and reputational damages.
Therefore, it is vital that all professionals are familiar with the “Brave New World” of the GDPR.
By the end of the programme, participants will be able to:
• Introduction to the GDPR
• Main Definitions of the Regulation
• What is Personal Data?
• Territorial and Material scope of the GDPR
• Basic principles of being GDPR Compliant
Who Should Attend
The programme is ideal for non-privacy professionals of all disciplines, levels and industry sectors.
