The Southern IT Forum has contracted Data Protection People to run a series of training sessions for its members to prepare them for the implementation of GDPR (general data protection regulation) within their respective organisations.
January’s session at Greensquare’s offices in Oxford focused on how to approach suppliers to understand how their systems will support GDPR compliance, as well as data processing and sharing agreements with third parties. A key point was that if housing providers have a sharing agreement in place, they can transfer the liability for a data breach to the data processor if it’s their fault, the agreement is robust and they did the due diligence.
Training materials and templates from the sessions are available to all SIT members via the forum’s Yammer site. To find out more about the SIT Forum, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
