Is your Privacy Notice a liability?

A breakfast workshop, designed for small business leaders, covering the legal and practical requirements for achieving compliant privacy notices.

Your privacy notice is not just the public face of your Data Protection activities. It is a legally binding undertaking to your data subjects. It must, therefore, comply fully with the law to avoid challenges that could cause reputational damage, and the smaller your business the more serious the consequences.

A recent examination of over 200 post-May 25th privacy notices, randomly selected online, revealed that none of them were entirely compliant with the new legislation, and many contained statements that were actually unlawful. Any one of the failings found could lead to a complaint and possible action by the ICO. This workshop will:

• Discuss the most important common failings found in current privacy notices
• Provide some universally applicable guidance on avoiding them
• Offer a standard template for achieving compliant presentation

The workshop will be conducted under the Chatham House Rule, allowing you to discuss your concerns freely with our speaker, Mike Barwise, Director, Business Information Risk Management Consulting.

Mike BarwiseFRSA, BSc, CEng, CITP, MBCS, M.Inst.ISP, has been guiding and supporting the Data Protection compliance of businesses for twenty years, from international PLC's to one-man bands. He monitored the progress of the GDPR throughout the full five years of its development and followed the entire passage of the UK Data Protection Act 2018 through Parliament.
Mike's understanding of the practical implications of the legislation for business activities is second to none. He has published and presented widely on aspects of information risk management and, in addition to consulting, he participates in national & international information risk initiatives.
