Last week, Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond outlined his Autumn Budget for 2017.
This week I provided my training talk about the new GDPR Rules to a forum of local HR Managers. They asked lots of questions and came up with some new and interesting views about the changes. One of those areas is the use of close circuit television (CCTV) for the monitoring of employees in the work place and how to comply with subject access requests.
This week I spoke to two animated business groups - Inspire Chambers of Commerce Elevate group and also the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program Cohort 5 at Oxford University. Both groups asked about data transfers, that is when data that you are processing goes outside the UK. This can happen for a number of reasons, including as a result of cloud computer arrangements and so I explain the basics here.
I am often asked about cloud computing arrangements. The new EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will require adequate security measures to be taken so that personal data about individuals is protected from loss, alteration or unauthorised access by third parties.
This week I presented a seminar to the HR Dept at their annual conference. HR professionals are well used to the importance of managing sensitive information and some interesting issues came up.
Last week I explained the requirement for a data protection officer (“DPO”). This week I set out what the role entails and as you will see this is a significant one with wide responsibilities.
