Business, What's On
Security locks and CCTV on your premises, money locked in the safe but how do you protect what might be your biggest asset – the information held about your customers and staff? Without that personal data, could your business survive? To help you understand your legal responsibilities about Data Protection on both sides of the border as well as to give clear and practical advice on how to handle personal data, the UK Information Commissioner’s Office and Ireland’s Office of Data Protection Commissioner are jointly hosting a data protection seminar with workshops in the Canal Court Hotel, Newry on 27th November 2012. As well as featuring a presentation from Microsoft (Ireland) on its experience of working with personal data across a number of countries, both the UK Commissioner and the Irish Commissioner will discuss the key issues affecting SMEs in their respective jurisdictions. This will be followed by a number of practitioner-focused workshops dealing with specific issues such as employment, auditing and security related topics. Throughout the morning there will be an opportunity to raise any specific questions you may have. The event is supported by Intertrade Ireland, Newry Chamber of Commerce and Dundalk Chamber of Commerce and will be of interest to all small to medium businesses who trade across both Ireland and Northern Ireland. The event is free and a light lunch will be provided. Places are limited and available on a first come, first served basis. If you wish to attend, please book online via the Newry Chamber website; www.newrychamber.com or contact the ICO on +44 (0) 2890 269380. For those unable to secure a place, the presentations from the event will be available from the ICO events pages at http://www.ico.gov.uk/news/events.aspx
