Organisations collecting and handling data on European residents will need to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by 25 May 2018. The Regulation sets significant and time-consuming requirements that organisations need to meet in order to avoid tough penalties for data breaches of up to €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is greater.
As EU residents are granted certain rights under the GDPR, organisations will need to create policies and procedures in order for individuals to exercise these rights. If your organisation processes data on EU residents – whether or not you are based in the European Union – you will need to implement and revise data protection measures, processes and policies in line with the GDPR.
To help organisations revise and develop the policies and procedures required under the General Data Protection Regulation, IT Governance is excited to announce the fourth webinar in the series.
The Revising policies and procedures under the EU GDPR webinar takes place at 15:00 BST on 1 September 2016, and will cover:
- An overview of the regulatory landscape
- Territorial scope
- Remedies, liabilities and penalties
- Principles of the EU GDPR
- Security of personal data
- The revision of policies and procedures
- Supervisory authorities
Led by Richard Campo, an experienced data protection and information security consultant at IT Governance, this webinar will shed light on how the GDPR will affect your business, some of the critical principles of the GDPR, and the policies and procedures required under the GDPR. The webinar is an essential event for anyone involved in data protection and compliance, or looking to undertake GDPR compliance projects.
Following webinars in the series are:
- 29 September 2016: Data flow mapping for EU GDPR compliance
- 27 October 2016: The EU GDPR and you: requirements for marketing
