These interactive sessions explore real-life examples and encourage delegates to discuss individual issues to find out how other organisations comply with the GDPR.

Each of the Workshops is run by one or more Industry Experts and considers practical and realistic case studies. Delegates are welcome to put questions to the Workshop leader at any time during the session. The full outline of each Workshop can be viewed here.

bridget-treacy-graphic-webA.  Accountability and Data Protection: What Does the GDPR Require?

Bridget Treacy - Partner, Hunton Andrews Kurth

Many organisations are grappling with how best to implement the GDPR’s accountability requirement. This Workshop provides a practical approach to ensuring data protection accountability in your organisation. Delegates will:
  • learn what accountability is and how other organisations are implementing it
  • discover the practical benefits of formal accountability mechanisms
  • explore the ICO’s proposed ‘accountability toolkit’ and how it will be used

 

Peter GivenB.  Direct Marketing: Common Issues and Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them

Peter Given - Legal Director, Womble Bond Dickinson

An effective direct marketing strategy is critical for most organisations. However, direct marketing is fraught with danger for the unwary and regulators have shown their willingness to punish non-compliance in this area. This Workshop, which is based in real-life war stories and case studies, provides practical guidance on:
  • the legal requirements in relation to direct marketing, as well as the latest guidance from the ICO’s Direct Marketing Code 2020
  • common problems and issues faced by organisations in complying with these requirements, including adtech and using cookies
  • solutions and strategies to overcome these challenges

 

James ClarkC.  Data Subject Rights: Preparing Compliant Responses While Minimising Organisational Burden

James Clark - Senior Associate, DLA Piper

Whilst most data protection practitioners are now familiar with the range of rights offered to individuals under the GDPR, many organisations are still grappling with the operational question of how to respond to requests in a way which is compliant, but also as cost and time efficient as possible. This Workshop arms attendees with the tools needed to maximise an effective approach to data subject rights handling, including:
  • how to clarify the scope and nature of a request
  • time limits
  • identity verification
  • conducting a search for personal data, including the benefits (and limits) of technology
  • interpreting and applying the relevant exemptions
  • what to include in a response


Dan WhiteheadD.  Regulating the Robots: the Emergence of AI Regulation

Dan Whitehead - Senior Associate, Hogan Lovells

As the EU’s White Paper on Artificial Intelligence 2020 says, “Without data, there is no AI”. The development of AI in compliance with data protection law is thus essential in order to obviate regulatory problems further down the line. This Workshop looks at key issues that organisations should be considering when starting to formulate AI solutions, both from a privacy perspective and wider regulatory context, including:

  • the requirements for fair processing and how AI might be impacted
  • adequate protection of personal data while using AI-enabled products and services
  • the impact of the EU’s impending regulation of AI
  • implications of the ICO’s AI Auditing Framework and its ‘Explain AI’ guidance

 



 


Afternoon Workshops: 2.00 pm - 5.15 pm

 

rosemary-jay-round-graphic-f2f2f2E.  Children’s Data: Applying the New Standards in a Practical Context

Rosemary Jay - Senior Consultant Attorney, Hunton Andrews Kurth

The GDPR, and the DPA 2018, have created a new focus on the need to protect children in the online world. The new regime covers specific requirements for parental consent for children’s processing in some cases as well as the standards in the ICO Code of Practice on Age Appropriate Design. While the initiative to protect children is welcome, applying the new standards in practice can be challenging. This Workshop:
  • addresses the GDPR requirements for verifiable parental consent
  • reviews the GDPR obligations, in particular in respect of profiling and automated decision-making
  • considers the reach and effect of the ICO Code
  • maps the Code requirements on to the GDPR and other legal regimes
  • considers the practical challenges of age assurance

 

Ann BevittF.  Data Breach Notifications: To Notify or Not to Notify – Is That the Question?

Ann Bevitt - Partner, Cooley (UK) LLP

When determining whether to notify supervisory authorities and/or individuals, many organisations are still finding it difficult to decide what to do. This Workshop uses real-life examples to illustrate particular challenges and to guide organisations on how to minimise risk to the organisation. Topics include:
  • the assessment of “risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons”: what this means and how organisations should approach it
  • the risks associated with specific types and combinations of affected personal data
  • notification as a journey, not a destination: although full disclosure at the outset is not required, the process must be handled appropriately
  • the importance of internal communications and behaviour during the investigation
  • current trends and expectations of supervisory authorities

 

John Wilson - Records Management ConsultantG. Records Management – Key Skills for Data Protection Professionals

John Wilson - Records Management Consultant

Records management practices intersect with data protection in myriad ways. But not all data protection professionals are familiar with records management techniques and practices. This Workshop provides delegates with:
  • an understanding of basic records management terminology, standards and codes of practice
  • an introduction to records management 'tools of the trade' and how are they are used in organisations, including how to identify and capture records, how to organise records, records security and access controls, how to find stuff, and retention and disposal of records
  • insight into how to align the records management programme with the organisation’s data protection compliance goals
  • guidance on how to monitor compliance with records management standards to ensure that anticipated benefits are being delivered

 

Liz FitzsimonsH.  Internet of Things and Smart Devices – Data Protection Challenges

Liz Fitzsimons - Partner, Eversheds Sutherland LLP

Products are increasingly smart and able to communicate, but manufacturers, suppliers and providers (as well as users) need to be aware of the complex privacy issues surrounding the use of such products and how to deal with them in this rapidly evolving space. This Workshop considers:
  • who must comply?
  • when does product data become personal, and which laws apply?
  • key risks, including security, individual rights and how to manage them
  • unexpected issues, including new data, special category data, pseudonymisation and further processing
  • are you direct marketing, and can you do so?
  • how to deal with indirect suppliers and providers, as well as affected third parties
