GDPR Workshop - Getting Data Protection Rights Right!
University of Essex, Wivenhoe Park, Colchester, Essex CO4 3SQ
Tuesday 22nd January 2019 9:30am - 12:30pm
Under Data Protection law, organisations are required to respond to and handle individuals requests to access or change their personal data. This could range from a member of staff asking to see all files on them through to a customer asking for the so called ‘right to be forgotten’ and for you to delete all their data. In this practical workshop, we will go through what individual’s rights actually are under the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 and what steps you can take to manage them effectively.
We’ll give you tips on how to spot and handle such requests, advice on what some of the problem areas are and how to avoid them and practical exercises on how to make requests more manageable within your organisation. Rights under Data Protection are one of the key areas of focus and enforcement for Government and regulators currently. Therefore, this is one of the key areas of Data Protection law to get right where you can.
This workshop will cover:
A Summary of the GDPR and Data Protection Act
What rights individuals have
Practical tips on how to handle such requests
Exemptions on where the rights don’t apply and things that can, and indeed should, be exempt from release
If you are responsible for compliance within your organisation, be that within customer services, legal or HR (to name but a few) this workshop is a good introduction and overview of what Data Protection rights are and how to manage them.
