Data Security Incidents: What are we expected to do and when?

The Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, reported in a speech in early December 2018 that ‘…the ICO has received more than 8,000 breach reports since May and it’s one of the areas that concerns business most. And rightly so. Because breach reporting is a not a mere administrative responsibility. It speaks to the accountability principle of the GDPR. The accountability principle requires you to take responsibility for what you do with personal data – and have processes and systems in place to demonstrate this compliance.’

Organisations can find managing data security incidents in compliance with the new GDPR responsibilities confusing and burdensome. Must every data security breach be reported to the ICO? What actions are we expected to put in place following discovering of a data security breach?

Our seminar will look at what the law requires and what data protection authorities expect. We will also spend time exploring different scenarios to determine the impact of the data security breach requirements and we will consider more broadly what other issues can arise when you experience a data security incident.

Who should attend?

This event is focused at senior members of staff who have responsibility for and experience of data protection compliance within their organisation, including Data Protection Officers and managers and senior HR advisors.
