Preparing for GDPR: Set your organisation on the path to compliance

Back to all events

08:45 Wednesday 17th January 2018

Broadway House, Tothill Street, London, SW1H 9NQ

  • The Event

Data protection law is changing. From May next year, all non-profit organisations must be ready to comply with the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The Government has also just announced a new Data Protection Bill. Time is short and preparation is key.

Every organisation needs to understand the significant impact the GDPR will have across all areas of operation – from individual consent to the right to be forgotten, from internal IT systems to negotiating contracts with third-parties. A new accountability requirement means organisations will need to be ready to demonstrate their understanding and compliance with data protection. Failure to comply could result in huge fines and potentially catastrophic reputational damage.

This workshop, jointly organised by sector leaders Adapta Consulting and Russell-Cooke, will give you an understanding of the legal and technical requirements of the GDPR as well as the practical steps you need to take to prepare. Through shared learning, you will identify key challenges for your organisation and map out the steps you need to take to deal with them.

Delegates will leave with an understanding of their data protection obligations under the GDPR and a personalised action plan to put their organisation on the path to compliance.
