Data Protection & Outsourcing - Translating the Complexities for Business
As an organisation you may wish to use another organisation to process personal data on your behalf. If you decide to outsource your data processing to another organisation the DPA imposes certain restrictions and obligations on you in relation to that processing. These requirements can often be difficult to translate into the complexity of modern business, with overseas transfers, off the shelf software and sub-contracting being a common way to stay competitive and budget friendly.
The position becomes once again more complex when the issue of Brexit is factored in, now that the UK is a ‘third country’. The UK applied GDPR may also impose new requirements, as it has its own independent territorial scope test meaning that all organisations will need to re-think their approach to outsourcing.
This virtual classroom seminar will be highly practical, up-skilling delegates to be able to deal with such contracts with confidence, providing a unique opportunity to share experiences and place the outsourcing process in the practical context. It is ideal for private practice lawyers, in-house counsel, public authorities, charities and data protection officers.
