Building the GDPR into every stage of your project - Privacy by Design and Default - Seminar 2017

County Hall, Riverside Building, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 7PB

10:00 AM - 12:45 PM


"There’s a lot in the GDPR you’ll recognise from the current law, but make no mistake, this one’s a game changer for everyone.”
- Elizabeth Denham, UK Information Commissioner, 17 January 2017

This seminar will examine the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on healthcare business intelligence – on both market research and data analytics. 

The Ethics & Compliance Committee’s goal is to help members navigate the detail of the GDPR, understand how it will impact their businesses and provide practical advice for members as they prepare.

We will make clear the GDPR’s requirements and their implications, focusing on:

  • What the regulation requires
  • The guidance from the BHBIA, taking into account guidance from the MRS, the ICO and the EU’s Article 29 Working Party

Speakers will represent a range of perspectives, including those from the commissioning client company, the market research agency and the fieldwork agency, and we are delighted to have guest speaker Dr Michelle Goddard, Director of Policy & Standards of the Market Research Society (MRS), with us too.  We’ll be providing information and guidance in short, sharp ‘bite sized pieces’ - and making clear the different roles and responsibilities of the key parties involved in the MR process. We will include a look at the impact of the GDPR on secondary data analytics as well as primary MR and you will have the opportunity to put your questions to all the speakers.

The GDPR is going to make a difference to how all those involved in market research and data analytics handle personal data.  With its introduction less than a year away, now is the time for action!
