Top 10 tips for data protection compliance
Sinead Ovenden - Director, Deloitte
The data protection principles are well known, but the real question is: what must be done to ensure compliance? Sinead Ovenden reveals the top 10 steps an organisation must take for data protection compliance.

Creating and managing data protection policies

Data security: it’s not optional

Professor Robert Clark - Consultant, Arthur Cox

Data security and data breaches continue to capture the headlines. Professor Clark discusses the findings and recommendations of the Data Protection Review Group, a group set up by Minister for Justice Dermot Ahern, which is reviewing the legal, technical and regulatory aspects of data protection legislation in light of the recent data breaches.

IT and personal data: keeping data safe in the current economic climate
Brian Honan - Director, BH Consulting
Incidents of employees using the data of an organisation for their personal gain are increasing. Brian Honan describes the most important IT safeguards and actions to take to ensure the safety of your organisation’s data.

Handling staff data: what you need to know
Rob Corbet - Partner, Arthur Cox
It is important that organisations properly obtain and manage staff personal data. In this session, Rob Corbet discusses data protection issues that arise in the employment context, as well as issues to consider when creating data protection policies for the use of staff data.

Data protection issues when data are stored offsite
Conor Madden - Managing Director, Lab Ireland
An increasing number of organisations are storing records offsite. Data protection safeguards must be in place for personal data within those records. In this presentation, Conor Madden discusses the issues that must be addressed, and describes a variety of solutions.

Private data, public sector: confidentiality versus FOI
Colin Rooney - Solicitor, Arthur Cox
More and more private sector information is being held by the public sector, where it can potentially be released under freedom of information laws. In this session, Colin Rooney discusses things to consider when public sector organisations deal with private sector data and the best ways to ensure that personal data are not inadvertently released under FOI laws.
