  • Harlequin Centre, Redhill

GDPR a Year on – The ICO have just handed out £300m fines are you safe! The seminar will cover the following items: The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is now part of the new Data Protection Act 2018 is having wide ramifications for all firms within the insurance sector and society as a whole. This presentation is a plain English look at how to be GDPR compliant. It is delivered very much from an insurance sector perspective, with appropriate relevant insurance examples being provided. The ICO have recently come out all guns blazing with eye watering fines for BA and Marriott totalling nearly £300m! How compliant is your business? find out what the ICO have been doing for the past twelve months and what they are now saying about the GDPR a year on. The presentation also looks at how the regulators are interpreting this act and some of the cases that have occurred since the introduction of the GDPR. The GDPR has two risks, one is being non-compliant and facing eye watering fines, the other is over restricting your marketing practices and suffocating your business. Many companies have unnecessarily restricted their business activities due to wrong interpretation of the GDPR - this presentation provides examples of how to be compliant but still successfully contact customers. This presentation is appropriate for all members. Underwriters, Claims staff, IFA’s. Loss Adjusters and anyone else who holds client data.
