Get ready for GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation 2018)

Carmichael Centre
9:45AM - 12:00PM

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force on the 25th May 2018, replacing the existing data protection framework under the EU Data Protection Directive.

As a regulation, it will not generally require transposition into Irish law (regulations have ‘direct effect’), so organisations involved in data processing of any sort need to be aware the regulation addresses them directly in terms of the obligations it imposes.

In this workshop participants will consider the following themes:

  1. The current legal framework
  2. GDPR as applicable from 25th May 2018
  3. Preparatory steps for the GDPR


Topics Covered

  • Main changes to the legal framework
  • GDPR principles
  • Organisational Awareness
  • Information held by you and your organisation
  • Communicating private and privacy information
  • Enhanced Individuals’ rights
  • Subject Access Requests
  • Processing personal data
  • Consent
  • Data Breach procedures
  • Privacy Impact Assessments
  • Nominated Data Protection Officer
  • DP Contracts
