What data do you hold?

Are you processing the data, or controlling it?

Do you have the consents to use that data like that?

Do you have a register of all that data and every way you use it, and what for?

Can you find every piece of data you hold that relates to an individual, copy it and send it to them—for free—within 30 days?

What happens when they say they want it erased?

The General Data Protection Directive came into force on the 25th May 2018. New powers mean regulators can impose fines for breaches up to 4% of annual turnover. But that’s not the only thing that will drive compliance- the data supply chain and a fresh threat of litigation are both driving change in organisations as well. This workshop is for anyone trying to make sure that their organisation isn't in breach, and can deal with requests related to the GDPR.

GDPR isn't just a compliance project. It's a business culture change project. Let's struggle our way through together.

This will be an audience-driven workshop session, so bring your hardest questions.
