Webinar series will help language firms implement GDPR

It’s less than four months until the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force and we know lots of language service providers are wondering exactly how to implement GDPR within our data-heavy environment.

To help them out, we’ve organised a three-part webinar series targeted at the needs of the translation sector and tackling the questions our members have raised about GDPR, which replaces existing privacy laws on 25th May.

GDPR is designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect the data privacy of individuals and to change the way organisations approach data protection. It is aimed at giving control of personal data back to private citizens.

Companies working across the translation sector will need to ensure they properly implement GDPR, and compliance with the new regulations can only further enhance the professionalism of our industry.

The webinar, which is free to ATC members, will focus on the basics of implementing GDPR within the core topics of how to handle freelancer data past and present, how to approach marketing and recruitment and how to approach any personal data within the content handled by translation companies, such as legal documents.

It will be presented by Mel Baker, a chartered CIPD HR professional, and HR Advisor at Sandberg Translation Partners Ltd. It will pool information from official sources, but also from a group of individual language service providers preparing for GDPR implementation.

The webinars are:

1. What is Personal Data/where might it be/how do we spot it
2. Point of entry and retention within language service providers.
3. Points of exit, breaches and deletion.

They take place on:

1. Tuesday 27th February 3pm-4pm (GMT)
2. Tuesday 6th March 3pm-4pm (GMT)
3. Tuesday 20th March 3pm-4pm (GMT).

The webinar fees are:

ATC Members – Free of Charge

Non-members – £30 per webinar discounted to £75 if all three booked together

Associated Partners – £20 per webinar.
