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.

Topics covered will include:

  • 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

  • The key elements of data flow management

  • How to process health-related information in the workplace

  • Understanding the rights for individuals, including subject access requests, data portability and requests for erasure

  • How to manage your contractual relationships to ensure GDPR compliance throughout the supply chain

  • Consent and transparency for automating any part of the recruitment process

  • Incident identification, reporting requirements and response lifecycle of a data breach

  • How to demonstrate compliance and satisfy GDPR regulators

  • The likely effect of Brexit on data protection and privacy
