Event description

Description

New Data Protection Legislation is coming into force on the 25th May 2018 that will have wide ranging implications for businesses of all sizes not to mention huge fines for non-compliance.

Credit professionals should be the centre of knowledge within their businesses when it comes to what needs to be done and how to do it.

ICMT in association with The Irish Data Protection Institute & Academy are hosting a half day seminar and workshop in The Merrion Hotel, Merrion Street Upper, Dublin 2 on Wednesday 14th March 2018 from 2.00pm to 5.00pm to explain the implications and to provide a practical guide on the necessary standards.

Why Attend?

Credit management is becoming increasingly reliant on data, we place a lot of confidence in the digital, electronic interaction, and the data trail it leaves. We use these to guide and inform our customers and clients, and it drives efficiency and enhances relationships.

The new GDPR regulations are placing certain limits and restrictions on the way credit management, and collection companies, do business. Control is being handed over to the individual, and credit managers may struggle to make well-informed decisions as a result.

Attendees will get a complete insight into what preparations have to be made and the ongoing action required for compliance.

You will return to your office with a clear picture of what needs to be done in terms of data gathering, data storage and data maintenance, down to new requirements on obtaining trade references, sharing information with others and data retention policies.

This is too serious to be left to chance and with just over two months to go, you really must know the extent of your personal responsibilities in this regard.

One of the major changes is that it is no longer sufficient to be compliant – you have to be able to demonstrate that you are compliant.

Article 83.5 states infringements will be subject to fines up to €20,000,000 or up to 4% of the total worldwide annual turnover of the preceding year, whichever is higher.

The presenter is Kevin McLaughlin BA FIICM CDPO. Kevin is the founding partner of the IDPAA, (The Irish Data Protection Institute & Academy) which provides training to businesses on the practical implementation of the directive. Kevin is business focused and has exceptional communication and Interpersonal skills. This combined with his legal knowledge places him in a unique position to deliver services and advice in the most operationally efficient manner possible. In preparation for the GDPR, Kevin undertook formal education in the field of Data Protection and has recently completed the GDip in Data Protection Practice and procedure and is a Certified Data Protection Officer within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation. This is the only University accredited DPO course in Ireland and is recognised by UCD, the Association of Compliance Officers in Ireland and the Institute of Banking.

IDPAA was created in recognition of the challenges many companies face in managing their data protection obligations under the new legislation and in how best to prioritise and organise their efforts, not just for May 2018 when it begins, but on an ongoing basis, where regular assessment will be required to remain compliant.

Kevin’s GDPR process and training is endorsed by the Association of International Credit Directors and Professionals. Kevin has been the Data Protection Officer for the Ward Group of companies for in excess of 12 years.
