Date: 15th February 2018
By May 2018, Data Protection Impact Assessments will be compulsory for a large number of organisations. Also known as a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA), PIAs will be mandatory under the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in any circumstance where a project proposal introduces risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects, it is essentially a risk assessment of proposed processing of personal data.
Possible examples of when this may be required for an organisation, would be in considering a new vendor, moving to a new market or processing platform, or introducing a new data processing activity.
It will be a requirement to run the PIA, document its findings and the resulting risk assessment, and show written evidence that these risks have been considered in the eventual design and build of the processing solution. Since most project proposals introduce some element of change, and therefore some element of risk, it is widely expected that PIA’s will become a familiar sight on the data processing landscape in the coming 12 months.
This unique CPD workshop will examine the concept of Privacy by Design, and will discuss the role of the DP officer. This will be a “learning by doing” workshop, to ensure that attendees know best practice in practical terms. We will cover an informative walkthrough of the GDPR in general terms, as well as the PIA methodology in detail, and explore how to identify and undertake a project that may require a PIA. You will hear from others in your field on the key risks that arise from the PIA, and will be offered guidance on best practice.
- Overview of the GDPR
- Review of the 7 Principles
- Focus on concept of Privacy By Design
- Role of DP Officer
- Review of criteria of projects requiring a DPIA
- Walk-through of the PIA Methodology
- Identification of typical project proposal which would necessitate a PIA
- Workshop – Tackling a project proposal using the PIA methodology
- Delegate feedback on the key risks and risk management initiatives arising from the PIA – Guidance on possible options
- Summary of best practice approach and learnings from the workshop
- Q & A
The ideal attendee would be someone who has responsibility for the implementation of such projects within their organisation – such as Data Protection Officers, Project Managers, Project Sponsors, or Programme Managers responsible for the success of the project. The course would also be very relevant to third-party vendors who need to be familiar with the process, including implementation managers from IT and data management service providers.
On completion you will receive your CMG Certificate of Attendance as well as your CPD Certificate containing 5 Structured CPD Points. Please note certificates are issued only at the close of the training course to participants who complete the full 5 hours.
