11:25am Data Processing Agreements under GDPR - Tricia Higgins, Legal Director, Fort Privacy
Under the GDPR if the data controller uses a third-party supplier to process personal data on their behalf then there must be a contract in place providing sufficient guarantees to ensure that processing meets the requirements of the Regulation. Tricia will be taking a deep dive into Data Processing Agreements under the GDPR and what organisations should be doing to ensure their Data Processing Agreements are GDPR compliant. https://fortprivacy.ie/staff/tricia-higgins/
11:50am Data Protection Impact Assessments - a Practical Guide - Marie Murphy, Operational Director, Fort Privacy
Marie will shed some light on the requirement in GDPR to carry out Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIA).
What is a DPIA and how do you go about carrying out a DPIA? What is the difference between a DPIA and an audit? How do you identify when a DPIA is required under Article 35 and are there circumstances when you would elect to carry out a DPIA even if it is not strictly necessary? https://fortprivacy.ie/staff/marie-murphy/
12:15pm Assessing Data Security Requirements under GDPR - Raluca Saceanu, Marketing Director, Smarttech
Data security plays a prominent role in the new GDPR and it imposes strict obligations to adopt a ‘data secure’ strategy and environment. During this presentation, Raluca will discuss what a data breach is, your responsibilities under the GDPR and will also provide attendees with a practical 5-step data security guide. This presentation is intended to be interactive so that the delegates grasp a detailed understanding of the requirements and how they work in everyday practical situations. https://www.linkedin.com/in/ralucasaceanu/
