Breakfast seminar: GDPR – a practical guide for HR professionals

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply from 25 May 2018. It introduces greater rights for employees as well as broader, more prescriptive obligations for employers, and the fines that can be imposed for transgressions are significantly increased.

HR professionals have a key role to play in making sure your organisations can demonstrate compliance with the new requirements. This webinar will provide an overview of the key changes from an employment/HR perspective, as well as practical tips for ensuring compliance in your day to day HR activities.

Our practical tips will focus on key areas including:

  • Auditing your employee data: what information is held and why? What records need to be kept?
  • The alternatives to relying on employee consent for processing employee personal data (and why an alternative is needed)
  • Reviewing your contracts with third party data processors: are these fit for purpose?
  • Updating your policies, procedures and privacy notices
  • Administering data subject access requests under the new regime: what are the changes?
  • Reporting breaches in line with the new notification requirements
  • Privacy impact assessments: when are they needed?

You will receive:

  • A practical overview of the key changes, specifically focussed on the employment context; and
