Data Protection and Information
Governance – Practical guidance
on how to apply the Law
There has been a
recent sharp increase in public sector organisations being targeted by cyber
criminals as they process valuable personal data on their citizens. Are you
comfortable that your council is applying appropriate security to that data?
Are you aware of the penalties and risks for not doing so? Are you aware of the
changes for data protection regulation?
Have you ever had a
tricky information request where you are unsure where to start, what to
disclose, and how much time you can spend on it before charging!?
Information is the
lifeblood of public services. However, complex legislation governs information
which often leaves organisations unsure about the different areas of compliance
relevant to them. This session will cover the 3 elements of good information
1. Data Protection
2. Information Security
3. Freedom of Information
It will provide
attendees with valuable knowledge in these three areas, but more importantly
practical tips and guidance on how to apply these in your councils in a manner
which will ensure compliance with legislation, and comfort that you have
satisfied your statutory requirements.
Who should attend?
This training is
suitable for Clerks, RFO's, chairman and councillors.
This session will be
delivered by Rob Long, Audit Team Leader and Information Security Lead at Audit
