Two years after the GDPR came into force in May 2018, Solicitors from BDB Pitmans and Counsel from 5 Essex Court will discuss the impact on organisations which control and process data. The webinar will focus on practical ways in which organisations can ensure compliance and respond to data breaches. 

The 40 minute session, chaired by Fiona Barton QC, will be split into four topics:

  1. Alex Ustych will provide an overview of the legislation within which public authorities, businesses, charities and not-for-profits must operate, as informed by the practical experiences of its application over the last two years. 
  2. Dennis Lee will consider what the last two years have taught us about the regulator’s approach to enforcement.
  3. Aaron Moss will discuss how organisations can respond to Data Subject Access Requests, a right which is commonly exercised against data controllers.
  4. Oliver Willis will explain how organisations should approach breach reporting so as to minimise the reputational and financial damage.
