This practical workshop will cover the essential aspects of the requirement for health and social care bodies to have a Data Protection Officer as outlined in the General Data Protection Regulation and associated legislation and guidance. It will concentrate on the tasks the Data Protection Officer must disperse.
In 2018 both the General Data Protection Regulation and a new Data Protection Act were introduced in the UK, requiring health and social care bodies, by the nature of their work, to employ a Data Protection Officer. There is, to a certain extent, relatively clear guidance in the legislation as to what this role entails. This course, however, facilitated by two highly experienced professionals in the field, undertakes to highlight how to practically implement the requirements, introducing a practical approach to concepts such as Data Protection Impact Assessments / Privacy by Design and Data Breach Management.
It will move beyond the letter of the legislation, to guide delegates towards the support that is available to them in the wider health and social arena and beyond in the dispersal of their duties as a Data Protection Officer.
