About the training

GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 became law on the 25th May 2018 changing the way businesses handle personal data. Twelve months on, this session will revisit all things GDPR and help co-ops that collect and process personal data understand if they've done enough to comply and help them plan to complete their GDPR 'to do' list.

This interactive session will:

  • Provide opportunities to discuss and share experiences with planning for, and implementing policies and procedures to comply with, GDPR
  • Share some practical tips and hints about implementing GDPR policies and help develop a measured approach to data breaches.

Training covers

  • A practical approach to help delegates review their co-op's progress on GDPR and help improve and enhance their approach
  • Myth Busting - is what I've heard about GDPR true?
  • What to do in the event of a data breach
  • Discussion of GDPR with peers.
