Join us to Discuss Key Developments in Data Protection Law and Practice

  • Emerging Trends:
    As we approach the end of 2008, we continue to experience unprecedented levels of change in both data protection law and practice. We analyse the emerging trends which affect both the public and private sectors and predict the major data protection issues for 2009.
  • Employee Monitoring and Privacy Considerations:
    Email/internet and telephone monitoring, video surveillance and even movement tracking are all infinitely possible in the workplace, but where does the law stand on these issues, and how should employers balance their desire for information against an employee’s expectation of privacy?
  • Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs):
    Over the summer, the Article 29 Data Protection Working Party published new guidance on BCRs, a framework which allows an international company to transfer data on a global basis. Are BCRs viable solutions and what are their advantages and disadvantages compared to other available methods of transferring personal data around the world?
  • How to Handle a Security Breach:
    A 2008 study showed that the cost to a UK company which suffered a data breach last year was on average £1.4m. It is unlikely that any organisation can totally exclude the possibility of a data breach occurring so we offer thoughts on best practice after a security breach.

This invitation is transferable and open to colleagues and guests. There is no charge to attend this seminar.
