Data Protection and Cybercrime

Cybersecurity is critically important as the internet of things takes off and our world becomes ever more mobile and connected.

Cybercrime is becoming more and more prevalent and firms are realising that allowing customers' data to be stolen by hackers is not good for business.  It damages corporate reputations and makes people less comfortable about sharing their personal information.

This half-day course will address key issues in Data Protection and Cybercrime covering the following:

1.      What are the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)?
2.      What do you need to do?
3.      What are the sanctions for getting it wrong?
4.      How to start the actions needed to get to this May
5.      Cybercrime and cybersecurity
6.      Questions

There will also be a case study presentation on how a particular company is applying Open Source technology, functional safety processes and control systems expertise to identify, mitigate and control the risks currently posed by system vulnerabilities in safety critical equipment.

Attendees will leave with a better understanding of:

1. Background to GDPR
2. The 5 Principles
3. ‘Big Rocks’ of data governance including
    a. Data Protection Impact Assessments – how to carry out a DPIA
    b. Data Protection Officer – do you need one?
    c. Data breach notification
    d. Records of Processing activities
    e. Appointing third parties – the new requirements for contracts and due
    f. International data transfers
   g. Privacy by design and default
4. Sanctions and liability – the scary stuff…
5. Practical steps toward compliance
    a. The 5 Ws
    b. Data Mapping
    c. Gap Analysis
    d. Action Plan to get you towards compliance

The course will be delivered by Helena Wootton, an expert in data protection and freedom of information law.  She leads the data protection team at Browne Jacobson LLP, working closely with colleagues in the technology, education, insurance, retail, public, financial services, manufacturing and distribution sectors.
