GDPR – The Honeymoon is over!

A workshop on how to handle data breaches and DSARs

Event information

Tuesday 8 October, 8 - 10 am

SHARE

After the implementation of the GDPR last year, it was expected that the ICO would give companies a year’s ‘grace’ before cracking down heavily on offenders. With the recent record fine notifications issued to British Airways, the Marriott hotel chain and doubtless many more to follow, it’s clear that the ‘Honeymoon period’ is now well and truly over.

In this workshop, members of Collyer Bristow’s Data Protection team will be using real case study examples to demonstrate how best to deal with a serious data breach. They will also take you through the process of how to deal with a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR), when you are contacted by someone wanting to know what data about them you are holding and processing.

Organisations should now have their ‘house in order’, in terms of data protection policies, procedures and security. However, even the most compliant of organisations will at some point suffer a data breach, whether through human error or malicious intent. How you deal with that breach could be the difference between a small ‘slap on the wrist’ and much more serious enforcement action, along with the painful damage to your brand and reputation that can follow.
