General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for NGOs
Tuesday, 24 April 2018 from 8.30 – 14.30 (BST) in London and 10:00 – 15:30 (CEST) in Brussels, Paris and Frankfurt.
Speakers from A4ID’s Legal Partner firm Mayer Brown International LLP will be conducting this training event from London and Brussels with live audio visual feeds to Paris and Frankfurt.
The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force throughout the European Union on 25 May 2018. It will replace existing national data protection laws and introduces significant changes and additional requirements that have a wide-ranging impact worldwide on the ways organisations are relying on data. NGOs collect and process personal data from their employees and staff, their members, individuals attending their events and donors. This event will assist them in assessing the impact of the GDPR on their activities and in defining their approach to compliance.
What will you learn?
A detailed explanation of the key changes and additional requirements introduced by the GDPR including:
- Tougher sanctions for non-compliance.
- Keeping records of data processing activities.
- A new data breach notification obligation.
- Providing information notices to data subjects.
- Higher standards for consent.
- Appointment of a data protection officer.
- Strengthening of individual’s rights to personal data.
- Enhanced requirements for the supply chain.
A 7 step methodology for approaching compliance will be outlined involving:
1. Informing your leadership and formulating a plan.
2. Mapping your personal data.
3. Appointing a data protection officer.
4. Reviewing the grounds under which personal data is being processed.
5. Drafting or updating information privacy notices.
6. Updating your data governance policies and procedures.
7. Reviewing your contracts with third parties and assessing your international transfers of personal data.
There will be a two hour seminar on the key principles of the GDPR and the compliance methodology set out above followed by a one hour break, then a two hour workshop where participants can put forward their questions based on practical real-life scenarios they are facing. Please send any questions to Joe Tan at Joe.Tan@a4id.org by no later than 5pm on 17 April 2018 (BST).
