Course Description

After over four years of discussion, the new EU data protection framework has finally been adopted. Taking the form of a Regulation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will replace the current Directive and will be directly applicable in all EU Member States without the need for implementing national legislation. Coming into effect on 25 May 2018, the GPDR contains some onerous obligations, many of which will take time to prepare for.

This two-hour live on-line seminar will outline the main provisions of the GDPR, with a focus on the effect the new regulation will have on Australian entities.  It will highlight some actions likely to be needed to prepare for the new regulation.

Course Content

The GDPR increases the protection of personal data by introducing a range of strengthened provisions including:

·       New or expanded individual rights, such as the right to be forgotten, limitation on automated profiling and data portability

·       Easier access for individuals to their data

·       Greater obligations for data processors, as well as data controllers

·       Increased responsibilities for DPOs and the requirement for non EU organisations covered by the GDPR to appoint an EU Representative

·       Extended data breach notification requirements

·       Data protection by design and by default

·       Stronger enforcement options, including fines of up to 4% of an organisation’s global annual turnover.

All of these provisions will be considered in this 2-hour on-line seminar.  Consideration will also be given to:

·       The extended operation of the GDPR

·       Implications for the transfer of data out of the EU

·       The effects of Brexit

·       Things to do to prepare for the introduction of the GDPR.
