The General Data Protection Regulation has now come into force. The UK’s third generation of data protection law has received Royal Assent and its main provisions commenced on 25 May 2018. The new Act aims to modernise data protection laws to ensure they are effective in the years to come. VinciWorks has hosted a number of webinars to help businesses prepare for the EU-wide law.
On 24, VinciWorks hosted a full-day live webcast to answer questions, interview experts and review the changes to data protection law under GDPR.

The upcoming webinar is part of a series of webinars VinciWorks hosted in the run up to GDPR day on 25 May.
GDPR – conditions for processing
Under GDPR, you need an approved ‘condition for processing’ for every data processing activity, but you don’t always need to seek consent. In this webinar, Nick Henderson explores the six conditions for processing data under GDPR.
GDPR – Data Protection Impact Assessments
During this webinar, Nick guided listeners through the process of conducting a DPIA. He also answered questions on the topic of DPIAs and gave guidance on next steps to those who have already begun the process.
GDPR – privacy notices
Nick and Gary discussed what should be included in a privacy notice, the changes required under GDPR and conducted some insightful live polls.
Should we be deleting our whole email marketing list? How much can you actually be fined for a GDPR offence? Will HR policies and practices be affected by GDPR? Nick Henderson explores some of the myths surrounding GDPR and helps organisations determine between helpful guidelines and scary myths.
GDPR – 10 steps to take before May
Nick and Gary discussed what organisations need to do to prepare for GDPR. During the webinar, live polls revealed that 49% of organisations are not yet sure what to do with their marketing lists ahead of GDPR day and that almost half of organisations have yet to carry out a Data Protection Impact Assessment.
