Navigating data protection risk and liability at board level

The event is to help directors, NEDs, c-suite executives, senior executives and managers to navigate ‘Data Protection Risk and Liability’.

At the Royal Yacht Hotel, on the 13th of June at 08.00, Comsure has invited the Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner [JOIC] to help directors and senior managers to navigate ‘Data Protection Risk and Liability’ in a complimentary 2-hour CPD event.

The JOIC has designed the event to help directors, NEDs, c-suite executives, senior executives/managers and compliance/risk executives. The workshop will highlight that effective data protection is essential in building trust and confidence with your customers, staff and stakeholders. And as all senior managers know, trust and confidence are integral components of the operational activities of any organisation. However, as we know, trust is hard-earned and easily compromised.

The JOIC’s Operations Director, Anne King and Policy and Research Lead, Samantha Gardner, have designed this Comsure workshop for directors and senior managers. Anne and Samantha wish to give tips to those responsible for overseeing “data protection enterprise risk management landscape”.


Anne and Samantha will offer their thoughts on the following:

  • Bringing Data Protection accountability [ownership] into the board room.
  • Determining a risk appetite, undertaking a risk assessment and setting a strategy.
  • How the board stress tests the effectiveness of data protection policies and procedures?
  • Enforcement and the impact of any regulatory action, including the effect of any fines?

  • a. Back to basics – what is data protection and personal data?
  • b. The Regulator and you.
  • c. Board-level involvement and accountability.
  • d. Practical tips.
  • e. Challenges and issues.
  • f. The Data Protection Boardroom Test.

Key takeaways for delegates:
