Data Protection: Practical Guidance for Employers

As many of you will know, the new General Data Protection Regulations and Data Protection Act will come into force on 25th May 2018. This legislation updates and re-writes data protection laws and gives the Information Commissioner the ability to impose significant fines.

The employment team at Bridge McFarland will be running a webinar on 28th February at 1pm looking at the new data protection regime and in particular how it will affect the handling of employee data.

The speakers will be Lee Whiting and Nicola Barrass, who are experts in the field of employment law and have advised many employers regarding their data protection issues over the last 20 years.

Lee and Nicola will take a practical look at the legislation and the steps your organisation can take to ensure compliance. They will also cut through the myths and scare stories which are circulating about the GDPR.

Topics covered in the webinar will include:

  • What information is caught by the legislation?
  • The data protection principles
  • What information has to be provided to staff?
  • Subject access requests
  • The new obligation to demonstrate compliance
  • The new obligation to report your own data breach
  • Pseudonymisation – could it be a silver bullet?
  • Enforcement and penalties
  • Practical steps for compliance

The webinar will be broadcast at 1pm on the 28th February 2018 and last approximately 50 minutes. Lee and Nicola will be available to take questions at the end. The webinar will be available to view on demand up to 1st June 2018.

There is only one fee per organisation which is £200 plus VAT and this allows unlimited users at the same organisation to view the webinar.
