Preparing for GDPR – What do HR teams need to know?

Huntress is pleased to invite you to our complimentary Seminar on Thursday 12th October in collaboration with Burges Salmon LLP.

The current UK data protection regime is being replaced in May 2018 when the European General Data Protection Regulation (the ‘GDPR’) comes into effect. With breaches attracting fines of up to 4% of worldwide turnover or 20 million (whichever is greater), compliance with the new regime is an urgent priority for all businesses.

Described as a ‘game-changer’, the GDPR is a single set of data protection rules designed to protect the data of EU citizens. The government has also confirmed that the GDPR will continue to apply (by way of a new Data Protection Act) once we have ‘Brexited’ so its effects are long-term.

The new regime will impact businesses across the board as it affects all personal data an organisation holds, including, for example, data on customers and suppliers. However, its impact on HR teams will be particularly significant as much of a business’s personal data will relate to its employees and workers, past, present and future.

At our seminar we will consider the changes that the GDPR will mean for those involved in HR and how to start preparing a compliance plan including:

  • Processing by consent
  • Privacy notices
  • Subject Access requests
  • New rights for data subjects
  • New record-keeping requirements
  • Data protection by design and default
  • Data breach notification; and
  • Consequences of breach.

Date: Thursday 12th October 2017

Time: 8:30 -11:30am

Location: 6 New St Square, London EC4A 3BF
