Implementing GDPR at an LSP

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC on 25 May 2018. It is designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organisations approach data privacy.

The GDPR is fast approaching and by 25 May the Information Commissioners Office will expect all companies to be compliant. This series of webinars is specifically tailored to LSPs who want to understand their obligations under this stricter regulation.

There is a vast amount of information and guidance on implementing GDPR to be found online, but LSPs across the world are wondering how exactly to ensure GDPR implementation within our data-heavy environment.

This three-part webinar series will focus on the basics of implementing GDPR within the core topics of how to handle freelancer data past and present, how to approach marketing and recruitment, and how to approach any personal data within the content that LSPs handle, such as legal documents.

The webinar will be organised by the ATC and presented by Mel Baker, a chartered CIPD HR professional and HR Advisor at Sandberg Translation Partners Ltd. It will pool information from official sources, but also from a group of individual LSPs preparing for GDPR implementation.

The webinars are:

1. What is Personal Data/where might it be/how do we spot it –  Tuesday 27th February  3pm-4pm (GMT)
2. Point of entry and retention within language service providers –  Tuesday 6th  March 3pm-4pm (GMT)
3. Points of exit, breaches and deletion – Tuesday 20th March 3pm-4pm (GMT)
