Data Protection: the do's and don?ts

Two years after the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force, the new legislative framework has had a significant impact on people's rights and responsibilities both inside and outside the workplace. This interactive workshop will blend the legal with the practical, to first assess the impact the data rules have had on business across the sectors - so what does it means for you?

This workshop provides delegates with:
? Key areas of enforcement alongside the future risks, threats and trends that we foresee with information management in 2021 and beyond.
? Practical information and advice on how to effectively manage data to reduce both individual and organisational risk, with case studies focusing on cultural shifts and data breaches.

United Welsh and Tai Tarian will use real-life examples to guide organisations on how to minimise risk to the organisation. Case studies include:
? Cultural change
? Breach notifications
? Business outcomes
