Business Bytes: GDPR One Year On
The SFA Business Bytes events, which are entirely free of charge, offer small businesses access to expert information and advice and an opportunity to network with their peers. The series is supported by Bord Gáis Energy.
GDPR came into force in May 2018, in our next session we look at what has taken place in the last twelve months and explore future data protection issues.
The seminar will be delivered by:
- Donna Creaven, Head of Supervision for the Multinationals and Technology, Data Protection Commission Ireland. Donna will provide delegates with an overview of GDPR 12 months on and detail the pressure points in relation to data breaches and breach notifications. The difference between a security incident vs an actual data breach will be explained. Delegates will also be provided with the questions to ask when considering new technologies or relationships with technology vendors and receive information on data processors and data controller relationships.
- Dave Feenan, Innovation Programmes Manager at Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet
and Cybersecurity Skills Initiative (CSI). Dave will present the activities that small firms can undertake to improve their cybersecurity hygiene and introduced the Government and industry supported Cybersecurity Skills Initiative.
- Helen Quinn, Executive, SFA. The SFA’s Helen Quinn will also be presenting on the night. Helen will discuss the main GDPR queries received by the SFA over the past 12 months and on how small firms should manage data access requests.
The event is open to SFA members and non-members. It will last for approximately one hour with an opportunity to network before and after. Refreshments will be provided.
