Request presentations from this session
About the workshop
With under 60 days until the GDPR becomes law, this workshop provided more information about what it will mean for police forces in the day-to-day business of managing requests, using a mixture of presentations and practical workshop examples.
The session was hosted by eCase and chaired by Colin Ley-Smith, National Police Freedom of Information and Data Protection Unit Manager, National Police Chief’s Council. It discussed the upcoming changes and gave the chance to work through the issues: examined the changes to request management for simple and complex requests, and looked at the legal basis for processing and how to apply GDPR and LED correctly.

|10:25||The Changing Legal Landscape
This presentation will consider the domestic and EU legal framework for data protection, including key provisions in the Data Protection Bill and examine practical challenges for law enforcement. The presentation will in particular highlight the difficulties arising where data protection law conflicts with the Investigatory Powers Act 2016. It will also identify any post-Brexit issues.
Which law am I using? Starting with the right legal basis and implementing the GDPR in practice
Why is it important to understand ensure you have a note of the laws/legal basis under which processing is taking place? Do you have the record of processing activity? Starting with Subject Access and the legal basis for processing, what are the new things that you need to consider for GDPR and Law Enforcement processing?
Application of subject information rights and part 3 processing: are you working with both parts of the Bill at the same time? What are the new things that you need to take into account?
Overview of the latest developments in the working parties and what are the resources that you can use for guidance? More on the NPCC's involvement, the guidance so far and where to find it.
