The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant development in data protection that Europe has seen over the past twenty years. There is a much greater emphasis on compliance following a widely-held belief that business had not taken data privacy seriously enough previously. Therefore, penalties are considerably harsher and now include small and medium businesses with in the Public Sector.

There has never been a more important time to ensure that best practice is in place to secure patient and staff data, protect reputation and ensure compliance. A planned and structured approach to the inevitable changes required for both systems and user behaviour suggests that the sooner preparation is started the better.

Trustmarque in partnership with Evolve North, will deliver a practical workshop in respect to the GDPR for Healthcare. This workshop will include a detailed technical and procedural review using the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) 12 guiding steps as a starting point.

The content of this workshop has been designed to be digestible by both those with an Information Governance and a Technical IT Security interest within the Healthcare sector. One of the key objectives of the event will be to identify where the technical and procedural controls overlap to ensure a robust ISM (Information Security Management System).

The day is very interactive, with extensive detail that aims to provide clarity and an objective approach in preparing for the GDPR.
