Data protection - what's keeping you awake at night?

Wednesday 4th December 2019



We are delighted to invite you to the third in a series of four seminars covering key areas for businesses. This seminar puts you in the driving seat by giving you the opportunity to dig out those questions about GDPR that you have put in the ‘too difficult’ box. Not only will our panel answer your questions, you will also hear what data protection matters are keeping other business managers awake at night, giving you the chance to share experiences and put any concerns into context – and all over a bite to eat.





Just to get your creative juices flowing, we thought we’d share some of the concerns voiced by businesses:

·         We do business in Europe – is there any clarity yet over what Brexit means for personal data transfers and the storage of data in the EU?

·         We have had a number of people asking us what data we hold on them. How should we respond?

·         Do we need a formal contract with third party processors and/or controllers?

·         Can we share data with other organisations and, if so, what’s the best way of doing so?

·         What disclaimers and policy statements regarding data collection for marketing purposes do we need to add to our website and market collateral?

You can either send us your questions in advance to events@wrighthassall.co.uk or bring them on the day.

Christine Jackson
Partner, Head of Data Protection at Wright Hassall

Christine heads up Wright Hassall's Data Protection team and advises organisations on their legal and commercial risk management processes and procedures. Her practice dates back to the (relatively speaking) pre-historic times of the arrival of the 1998 Data Protection Act!  Since then, she has advised a wide range of businesses in respect of not only their day-to-day business operations, but their global data protection compliance programmes,  advising SAAS providers, IT outsourcing service providers, FMCG manufacturers, automotive manufacturers and suppliers, professional service providers, app developers, education providers, charities and not-for-profits. Christine also delivers sector-focused and engaging training to clients on both privacy issues and other matters affecting businesses from an operational and legal risk perspective.
