  • The proposed changes to current legislation
  • What the changes mean in practice
  • Steps to take at this stage to ensure compliance by May 2018
  • Details of fines for non-compliance

Natasha Johnston, HR Advisor at JCP Solicitors will provide an insight into the upcoming changes to data protection and how organisations can best prepare. From a HR perspective, GDPR will change the who, what, where, when and why of processing employee data. Employers should have started preparing to ensure compliance when GDPR comes into effect.

This workshop will provide an overview of:

  • A review of the new rights and the implications from a HR perspective
  • Privacy Notices and what needs to be included
  • Risk Impact Assessments
  • Data Registers
