    GDPR Compliance Training – become compliant in 2 weeks 

    GDPR 123 are running a two session GDPR compliance training course for Chamber members aimed at SME and Micro Businesses.  You do not need any knowledge of GDPR, just the desire to help your business become compliant.

    This is NOT yet another GDPR seminar but is instead a practical course delivered in two parts. If you follow the guidance you will not only be able to demonstrate GDPR compliance, but also have the knowledge and procedures to maintain ongoing compliance.

    Dates: Session 1 on 10th July and Session 2 on 24th July
    Venue: Burlington Hotel
    Cost: Members Only £150.00 + VAT    Manuals can be purchased

    To book please email simon.lyndhurst@gdpr123.com
    or call 07767611622


    The workshops will be run over two sessions each session runs for 3.5 hours.

    There is the option of 3 different time slots per session, please select one time slot per session

    10th July Session 1 (select time)
    9.00am-12.30pm

    9.00am-12.30pm
    1.00pm-4.30pm
    5.00pm-8.30pm


    Session 1 includes:

    Governance Review – this is looking at the Policies, Procedures and Plans that you have in place and determining if they meet GDPR standards. Where your documents don’t meet the new standards or the company doesn’t have them, not a problem, we provide them. This is a special offer provided in conjunction with the Chamber.

    Data Flow Mapping – this has an immediate and ongoing benefit.  If you are able to understand the journey of Data through your organisation then you can start to manage it.  As GDPR is an ongoing consideration having this skill means you will be able to self-manage your data on a continual basis.  These skills will transfer into the home as well.

    Data Flow Mapping - Website Review – a closer look at the compliance of your website.

    Supply Chain Mapping – This section identifies where data is passed to third party organisations. One of the goals from this section is to create a list of organisations that need due diligence applied.

    Risk Management and Conducting a DPIA – DPIAs are mandatory and you will learn how to carry out a quick and effective data risk assessment.

    Techniques to Consent your Client Base – opt in? opt out? soft opt in? legitimate interest? Which one, if any is right? PECR?

    DPO “Data Protection Officer” Decision Making – Do you NEED a DPO? Do you WANT a DPO?

    Goal Setting – a realistic list of objectives to be completed in time for the second part of the course in two weeks’ time.
