Making Sense of GDPR - Basildon

Holiday Inn, Basildon, Waterfront Walk, Festival Leisure Park, Basildon, Essex SS14 3DG

Thursday 24th May 2018
9:00am - 12:30pm

Unless you have been in hiberanation, you are more than aware of the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that come into force on 25 May 2018.  However, are you aware of what your responsibilities under this will mean? Will your current data policies and working policies be compliant with GDPR and if not what changes might you have to introduce to your current working practices to ensure you comply with these regulations.  

This is EU legislation which will come into effect before “Brexit” and will remain in force after we have left the European Union.  Fines for non-compliance will likely be higher than at present and the GDPR will be more wide ranging than the Data Protection Act so it is important that businesses understand what is required of them.

The world of information law compliance can be complex and demanding, with simple advice and quality support hard to come by. Essex Chambers of Commerce have therefore joined forces with Scott Sammons, who has a great deal of experience and expertise in this area, to bring businesses up to date with what these changes in legislation will mean.

Due to popular demand, we will be running one more general awareness session in Basildon on Thursday 24 May 2018 which will be presented by Scott Sammons FIIM, AMIRMS, Cert.NLP 

Scott is an experienced Information Governance Practitioner and trainer having worked in Data Protection and Information Management for the last 10 years across various sectors including public, private and voluntary sectors. Under the banner of Lighthouse IG Scott now supports various organisations with their information handling needs and legal requirements, including implementation of the GDPR. Scott is certified in Data Protection, Freedom of Information, Information & Records Management and the information security standard ISO27001. Scott is a fellow of the Institute of Information Management Africa and volunteers as Chair of the Information & Records Management Society (IRMS) of the UK & Ireland. Scott also sits on the exam board for a current GDPR practitioner certificate and can be found on twitter under @privacyminion and @IGlighthouse.
