Is your practice GDPR-ready?

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018, replacing existing laws and impacting everyone who has day-to-day responsibility for data protection. 

Presented by dentolegal advisers Brian Westbury and Phil Shaw, this webinar will outline changes in legislation and the obligations that these will place on practices as data controllers.

Suitable for general dental practitioners and their teams, this live one-hour webinar will help you practically apply the new guidance, using relevant practice scenarios to help you adequately prepare for 25 May.

Webinar objectives:
  • To help you understand the necessary changes following the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulations in relation to dental practice.
  • To increase your awareness of the impact the changes will have to the processing of personal data.
  • Identify key steps you can take now to prepare for 25 May 2018.
  • To outline how Subject Access Requests should be managed under the new regulations.
  • To demonstrate the necessity of appointing, and the important role of, the data protection officer (DPO).
  • To help you understand the potential consequences of failing to comply with the regulations.
