The 2nd annual Privacy Matters summit is opening in Guernsey this year, on Thursday 13th June. The free-to-attend lunchtime event will take place at the Duke of Richmond hotel and tickets are available on EventBrite.
A spokesperson for event host priviness said: “We were bold and ambitious in focusing on aspects of privacy and data protection not normally covered. Is your legally-binding contract unlawful? Are the personal details of your clients and employees being bought and sold on the dark web? We wanted to ensure that, a year on from GDPR (the EU’s data protection legislation), the Guernsey community had an opportunity to better understand what their own data protection obligations are.”
Last year’s event in Manchester provided delegates with advice and resources they could use in their business, like easy templates to use for writing cookie and privacy notices.
priviness aims to make the event widely applicable. They said: “We wanted to involve the broader community as much as possible. There will be a panel of experts answering questions regarding personal data breaches, how to handle complaints, and what to do in the event of more complex subject access requests – typically from disgruntled suppliers, employees and clients.
“There are still places left, and in particular if you are a practice manager at a GP surgery, an office manager at a local school, or responsible for compliance in your local council, this short event is made for you.”
Nominations are currently open for the 2019 priviness awards, celebrating those who have made a real contribution to data protection.
