robert-bond-f2f2f2COVID-19 and Data Protection

Robert Bond - Partner, Bristows

COVID-19 has thrown confusion on our collection and processing of personal data in certain key areas. We are processing health data of employees and visitors to our offices and of customers to our premises. We are working remotely and meeting virtually. This talk provides practical guidance on how to meet these challenges while staying compliant with data protection rule

 

 

Dan CooperSchrems II and the Path Ahead for Privacy Shield and Model Clauses

Dan Cooper - Partner, Covington & Burling LLP

This session discusses the practical implications of the ruling in Schrems II, including what it means for organisations relying on the EU-US Privacy Shield and EU Model Clauses for transferring personal data out of the EEA. The session considers in particular the expectations of parties relying upon the model clauses in light of the Court’s ruling, how regulators appear to be reacting to the abolition of the Privacy Shield, and the practical measures that organisations should adopt to lower their compliance risks in light of the judgement

Children’s’ Data – What Organisations Need to Bear in Mind

Rosemary Jay - Senior Consultant Attorney, Hunton Andrews Kurth

The GDPR stipulates greater protections for personal data on children, and while some organisations target children, many process data on children inadvertently. This talk provides an overview of the key practical issues that organisations need to watch out for.

 

 

Gemma ThomasHow to get Senior Management to talk “Data Protection” and Promote Compliance

Gemma Thomas - Data Protection Officer, Independent Office for Police Conduct

It can be challenging to get senior management teams ‘onboard’ with data protection compliance. Adherence to obligations can be seen as the DPOs “problem to solve.” This talk explores how to transform data protection compliance into a hot-topic that senior management are keen to engage in, and to promote across the organisation.

 

 

Kate BrimstedGroup Actions for Compensation

Kate Brimsted - Partner & Head of Data Privacy, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner

An emerging threat to organisations under data protection law is the rise of the ‘class action’, whereby many individuals collaborate together (usually instigated by a law firm) to bring an action. While each person’s individual claim can be modest, large numbers of claimants can mean that claims are in the millions with substantial legal costs as well. In this talk, Kate considers the current trends in group actions, and what we can expect to see in the coming months and years.

 

 

Sandy Tsakiridi, HSBCData Protection Implications of Artificial Intelligence

Sandy Tsakiridi, Data Privacy & Digital Lead, HSBC

The emergence of AI as one of the most widely used technologies has prompted organisations to tackle the challenges of balancing AI design and deployment with data protection compliance. This session looks at the key privacy concerns raised by AI, how AI fits with some of the key requirements of the GDPR and the compliance tools than can be employed by organisations.

 

 

Emma Erskine-FoxCookies, Consent and Compliance in the Adtech World

Emma Erskine-Fox, Senior Associate, TLT LLP

Advertising has been transformed by the digital revolution. The explosion of Adtech undoubtedly brings substantial benefits for brands, enabling them to generate maximum engagement. But the data protection challenges are significant. In an area that continues to attract regulatory scrutiny, this talk considers how organisations can leverage the significant advantages of cookies and Adtech whilst remaining within the legal requirements

 

 

Ellis ParryAccountability – the bridge between ethical uncertainty and innovation

Ellis Parry - Data Ethics Advisor, ICO

The Centre for Standards in Public Life has recommended the UK government formulate and issue one set of comprehensive ethical principles to govern the public sector. Unless and until those recommendations are actioned, organisations are left wondering how to bridge any uncertainty. This talk provides practical advice from the ICO on selecting the most appropriate set of ethical principles already available and building them into existing decision-making processes, leveraging all the work already done internally to evidence GDPR ‘accountability’, ‘fairness’ and ‘transparency’.
