• GDPR Ready?
     
    15th November 2017
    Madejski Stadium, Reading UK

    With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) deadline fast approaching it's never been more critical for businesses of all sizes to ensure they understand the implications. This event will provide you with a better understanding of the regulation and provides a road map to compliance.

    How will GDPR affect your business?

    Do you have a strategy in place for your Security department? What about the IT, Marketing & HR departments?

    Brexit isn't going to save you from GDPR, it coming and you need to be ready for it.

     

    Significant penalties can be imposed on employers that breach the GDPR, including fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual worldwide turnover, whichever is greater. It's not enough just to be compliant, you will also have to be able to demonstrate compliance.

    GDPR-inspired customer-centricity presents an opportunity for more honest and transparent customer relationships

     

    Business leaders should not view GDPR as merely a legal and compliance box-ticking exercise. Those that do will probably fall short of customer expectations. Viewing it as an opportunity to establish a more honest and transparent relationship with customers will create a company-wide rallying cry, ensuring more people get behind it, improving collaboration, and creating longer-lasting benefits. This session explains how business leaders will win by defining, leading, and delivering their own vision for a GDPR-inspired customer-centric approach. We will also review the DMA’s latest GDPR research amongst UK businesses, and the latest ICO/DMA guidance.

    Your data responsibilities as an employer

     

     

     

    You may think your employment record keeping is compliant with the Data Protection Act but the GDPR and Data Bill will impact all employers. The changes include more rights being created to permit the transfer and removal of personal data as well as more onerous obligations on how you deal with the data you hold, whether it’s at the recruitment stage or when the employee leaves and everything in between.

    Pam Loch, Managing Director of Loch Associates Group, will explore the implications of GDPR for employers and discover the practical steps you can take to ensure you don’t get caught out with a fine.

    Doing the right thing first, GDPR follows

     

     

     

    There is lots to panic about with GDPR, the fines, the new rights, timescales ect, and it’s very easy to get overwhelmed by the scale of the task. This session aims to take a step back from GDPR, and look at it from another perspective. That being what would our customers expect?
    Doing this lets you take a customer focused view of a GDPR program and then design a service around it, rather than bolting GDPR on to existing and often floored processes.
    In this session we’ll take a look at how Thames valley housing approached GDPR, and look at how many of the requirements help give our tenants a better user experience.

    We'll provide specific examples on how that approach was implemented successfully through the majority of the Micro Focus company enterprise software products portfolio.

    Senior Cyber Security Adviser at Atos

     

    Why technology alone won't solve GDPR

     

    As many IT leaders will be only too aware from the daily glut of marketing emails and other online hype, security vendors are desperately trying to push their products by promising to “solve” the GDPR problem. However, it is very clear that there is no single technology silver bullet that will make you “GDPR compliant”, if that were even a thing.
    In this session, Tim will discuss the role that cyber security technology can take to help you in your quest for improved data security, but also help to identify the other approaches that need to be taken to fill the gaps that technology alone cannot solve.

    GDPR - The Clock is Ticking!

     

     

    In his talk James will cover the key elements of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), what these changes will mean to businesses and organisations and what steps need to be taken now to ensure full compliance.
    The new regulation places a strong emphasis on ensuring that privacy is at the heart of business decision making - “privacy by design.’’ James will discuss what 'privacy by design' means in practice and how organisations need to take into account and record how their new data processing activities may affect privacy.
    A key section of the talk will cover an individual's right to control their personal data including:

     

    •the right to data transparency
    •the right to data portability
    •the right to be ‘forgotten’.

     

    In the final section of his talk James will cover what is meant by a compliance strategy, what it must cover and how to implement it.

    Gaining & Retaining Cross Company Engagement with your GDPR Programme
     

    GDPR is a complex and medium to long term initiative focussed on compliance but it doesn't deliver the quarterly growth targets that many departments naturally focus on. Some of those functional departments are ones where the GDPR programme needs particular focus, prioritisation and engagement, including Sales, Marketing, Customer Service etc. where the management of data is highly prevalent but the focus on 'delivering the numbers' makes it hard to gain commitment and prioritisation.

     

    During this session Mark & Rupert will be working with you to explore ways of gaining engagement, momentum and confidence across the business. We will inject our specialist knowledge and our real experience of similar situations to provide insights to tools and techniques that will help attendees think through some ways of bringing the whole business on the GDPR journey

    Intersection of ePrivacy & GDPR: Solving the Difficult Problem of Consent

     

    Every website will undergo fundamental changes to comply with the GDPR and ePrivacy Directive. It’s much more complex that it seems. The transparency and consent requirements of both regulations are unclear. Equally challenging is how to collect consent while improving the user experience vs. sacrificing it in the name of compliance. Companies are understandably confused, and need to know where to go for help, now.

    In this session, learn how technology solutions will help organizations solve the most challenging aspect of the GDPR and ePrivacy law – transparency and consent.

    GDPR – from plan to practice

     

     

    GDPR is coming! Events, webinars and organisations are all discussing its impact on business and how it will affect the B2B and B2C environment. There does however seem to be a lack of clarity about what organisations actually need to get going with their plans, or how they even start the planning process. We will look to de-mystify this process and help to bring some clarity to the steps that business need to take to become compliant. GDPR has the potential to transform the way businesses operate and they need to be well informed to ensure that their reputations, finances and customers don’t suffer.

    GDPR is a complex and medium to long term initiative focussed on compliance but it doesn't deliver the quarterly growth targets that many departments naturally focus on. Some of those functional departments are ones where the GDPR programme needs particular focus, prioritisation and engagement, including Sales, Marketing, Customer Service etc. where the management of data is highly prevalent but the focus on 'delivering the numbers' makes it hard to gain commitment and prioritisation.

    Every stage of the life-cycle of a data subject's relationship with the controller, from the information to be provided and recorded to a new data subject, through to a strengthened and clarified "right to be forgotten", will undergo significant upheaval as a consequence of the GDPR's implementation in 2018. This session will cover the ways in which the rights of a data subject will have to be considered and safeguarded throughout that life-cycle, under the new regulation.
