“The GDPR, which was approved in 2016 and comes into force on 25th May 2018 will be directly applicable as law in the UK. It will replace the Directive that is the basis for the UK Data Protection Act 1998, which will be repealed or amended. It is expected that the provisions of the GDPR will remain in force post-Brexit, and for the foreseeable future… Organisations must be able to demonstrate compliance.” Information Governance Alliance 2017

“By establishing or adjusting governance arrangements to comply with the GDPR, organisations will be confident not only that they are respecting the law and data subjects’ rights but also that they are mitigating risk appropriately and have a defence in the event of a breach. Under the GDPR, the fines available are significantly increased and may be imposed for any infringement of the Regulation, not just data security breaches.” Information Governance Alliance 2017

With an opening address from Dawn Monaghan Chair Health and Social Care Working Group on GDPR & Head of Data Sharing and Privacy NHS England, this National Conference focuses on Information Governance in Health and Social Care, ensuring demonstrable compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into force in May 2018. Through national updates, expert led extended interactive sessions and practical case studies the conference will support you to ensure compliance in your service. 

The new requirements include key changes for health organisations and arm's-length bodies. From May 2018:

  • organisations will have to show how they've complied with the new law
  • penalties will be significantly increased for any breach of the regulation - not just data breaches
  • security breach notifications will be a legal requirement - to be notified within 72 hours
  • charges will be removed in most cases for provision of records to patients or staff who request them
  • trusts will be required to keep records of data processing activities
  • high risk processing will require a data protection impact assessment
  • data protection issues must be addressed in all information processes
  • there will be specific requirements for transparency and fair processing 
  • there will be much tighter rules where consent is the basis for processing.
