CaSE Insurance and BWB would like to invite you to a seminar on: “Data governance for charities and social enterprises”.

Dates & Times

November 24, 2016 @ 12:00 am

Brief Outline

The personal data you hold is a major resource of key importance to your organisation. It is vital you get its governance under tight control in light of the changing legal and regulatory landscape and increased media scrutiny. This seminar will help you understand the issues and how your governance can be improved

Who should come to the seminar?

This is a non-technical seminar aimed at senior managers and trustees in charities and social enterprises who are concerned with data governance.

Seminar Content

The seminar will cover the following…

• Data Protection in a Changing Regulatory Regime

This session will cover the increasingly strict regulatory regime for organisations governing how they use personal data. It will include recent changes in fundraising regulation as well as the new data protection requirements that will be brought in by the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation, as well as the likely impact of Brexit on this legislation.

• The Impact of a More Innovative Approach to NHS IT Projects

A case study on how changes to NHS England’s patient database management and record keeping have had a hugely positive impact on its data management and patient care.

• Cyber Risk and Risk Management

What is “cyber risk”? What can you do to mitigate the risk? What insurance cover is available? What is worth having?

• Complying with data governance at sensitive times

We engage with service users at very sensitive, often highly emotional times and we might be the fourth or fifth agency asking them for information. This session will explain the issues we face and the data governance challenges of working with those agencies to reduce duplication.
