GDPR and Human Resources: How to Achieve Ongoing Compliance - £595pp
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is here to stay. It’s a journey, not a destination that requires robust processes and continuous evaluation. The challenge of staying compliant is acute; GDPR has regulated the way payroll information, such as employee details, individual’s expenditures, medical records and other sensitive data is processed in the HR department.
HR’s role in handling this sensitive data is essential, putting human resources on the frontline in the battle to keep organisations GDPR compliant. Given the potential fines and reputational damage for non-compliance organisations cannot afford to become complacent, a breach within a single department, such as HR, will be damaging to the entire organisation.
During this workshop we shall learn how leading HR professionals have adapted and evolved within the now highly regulated environment to achieve ongoing compliance.

An overview of the regulatory framework and privacy laws within the UK, EU, alongside a global perspective
An update on policies for collecting and processing personal data
