This, just in, from Darren Wright at Inside Outcomes CIC:
Following on from our blog post on how to get prepared for GDPR we’ve decided to turn advice into action and are holding a free workshop in conjunction with the Birmingham Innovation Engine Project to explain the implications of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR).
Recognising that there are a lot of people out there creating an industry out of the fear around GDPR we decided to take a practical approach to things that you can do to get your business ready for GDPR. You can find extensive information on what GDPR means to you on the Information Commissioner’s Office website. We’re not going to ask you to give up your valuable time to just go through stuff you can read on the Internet. This workshop will focus on practical things you can do now to prepare for when the regulations come in. The three areas we will focus on are:
1) Developing an organisation-wide data protection policy.
2) Auditing the data you hold.
3) Ensuring you have informed consent to hold data.
The workshop will take place on Wednesday 10th January 2018 from 09:30am to 12:30pm at the Universities Centre, Innovation Birmingham, Faraday Wharf, Holt St, Birmingham B7 4BB.
