GDPR - The Role of a Director or Trustee
The Information Commisioner's Office has made a clear statement that data protection and GDPR compliance is 'a boardroom issue'. This workshop is aimed at Trustees, Directors and Leaders of organisations across any sector including business, charities, Multi-Academy Trusts and any other Not For Profit organisation. As the course is jargon free, no prior technical knowledge or experience is required to gain the benefits of attending.
In the run up to the 25th May 2018, we were all inundated with emails from organisations pleading for our consent to continue to hold our details and begging us to read new privacy policies. We were frightened on a daily basis with threats of eye watering fines, of tales of businesses being unable to continue to use their marketing databases, and the fear of a deluge of subject access requests. But what’s happened since GDPR has come into effect? The world hasn’t come to an end but GDPR remains an important subject particularly for those governing organisations.
In a speech to the CBI in September 2018, James Dipple-Johnstone the Deputy Commissioner at the ICO stated :
“If you adopt privacy by design, treat cyber security as a boardroom issue, and demonstrate a robust culture with appropriate transparency, control and accountability for your and your customers’ data, then we will not usually have an issue with you should the worst happen.”
But what does this mean? And what action is the ICO currently taking?
As Directors, Trustees and Leaders in an organisation, the legislation requires us all to be accountable and to ensure that the personal data of our customers, volunteers, students and employees is kept safe and treated with respect.
During this education session you will be provided with an overview of what’s happened since the 25th May 2018 and presented with some forecasts on what can be expected in the future. We will look at opportunities that good data governance can provide an organisation.
