CPD questions for Data Protection: Myths & Reality

"We can't retain this data because of data protection!" 
"We can't disclose this data because of data protection"
"Consent can never be given in the employment context"

Have you ever heard these comments before?
 
Data Protection legislation is blamed for many things. There are many misconceptions and misunderstandings. In this session we will be hearing first hand from the Information Commissioner's Office what are commonly held "myths" in the world of data protection and what the reality is.  
 
David Smith, Deputy Information Commissioner with lead responsibility at ICO for Data Protection Policy & Regulatory Action, will answer the following questions:

▪ What are the most common myths about data protection?
▪ What is the reality?
▪ What is ICO doing to improve understanding of, and compliance with, data protection legislation?
▪ How can lawyers and their clients help to put the ICO’s vision into practice?
▪ Where do the ICO’s enforcement powers fit in the equation?

In addition Ruth Boardman will be looking at another area for misconception namely "consent" and looking at the requirements for consent in different EU locations particularly in relation to employment.
