Kim Bradford – GDPR and Data Protection Consultant

Kim Bradford – GDPR and Data Protection Consultant

spherehr - PAF17

Track: GROW

As a practitioner in both HR and Data Protection, Kim has a deep understanding of the close relationship between the two fields, bound by the concept of ‘treating people’s personal information right’.

The human element in so many examples of data security breaches demonstrates all too clearly that GDPR compliance will become HR’s problem very quickly. It will be the HR department that businesses will turn to in order to implement staff training and security awareness, both initially and on an ongoing basis.

This means that it is not only essential that HR professionals understand how the new laws impact businesses, they need to be in the driving seat when it comes to reviewing the flows of personal data within a business. Chances are that there will need to be some behavioural and practical change management, and potentially some business influencing required.  Who better to drive this than HR?

Whilst the driver for compliance may not sit solely with HR, they have a unique opportunity to get involved and prove some real value-add to businesses, and that opportunity doesn't come around all that often.

This session will focus on some of the key areas within HR that will be impacted by GDPR, and what you should be focusing on to address these.  Kim will introduce the differences between old and new legislation to highlight the changes, and then look at some areas to focus on, and highlight some challenges within the wider HR function, incorporating:

-  Recruitment and induction
-  Absence management
-  Performance management
-  Talent management
-  Payroll
-  Leavers and exit processes

Attend this session and learn:

- Where you need to focus your efforts when preparing for the GDPR – whether you’re based in the UK, Europe, or outside the EU but with employee or client data from within the UK/EU

- Some important discussion points to raise in your conversations within your business

- A positive focus on action and a roadmap for making a start on any work that is needed

- Further knowledge that will facilitate your involvement in whatever work may already be taking place within your organisation.
