GDPR in the Public Sector Conference: Deadline for compliance

8th November 2017
Salford University

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.

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?
  • What new technology and data management tools are available to manage the transition to GDPR?

Why attend?

  • Network with delegates from across the public sector and discuss different approaches to data collection and storage.
  • Hear from leading experts in GDPR and benefit from the latest insights.
  • Analyse case studies and learn how leading organisations are preparing for GDPR.
  • Understand your obligations and responsibilities under GDPR.
  • Make sure your organisation is ready for GDPR by understanding how to draft a compliance programme and do more to protect the public’s sensitive information.
