BS 10012 launch
Data protection – Specification for a personal information management system

3 April 2017

Venue: De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, Holborn, London

BS 10012 launch - Data protection

The objective of this British Standard is to enable organizations to put in place, as part of the overall information governance infrastructure, a personal information management system (PIMS) which provides a framework for maintaining and improving compliance with data protection requirements and good practice.

This new edition of BS 10012 has been written in recognition of the publication of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which was approved by the European Parliament on 14th April 2016. Implementing it will support many organisations in their implementation of an appropriate “Information Governance” strategy.  It will also help in protecting the organisation from the fear of significant fines and reputational damage following GDPR non-compliance, as well as helping to reduce the ‘actual’ cost of recovery following privacy breaches.

We hope that you can join us to hear our speakers and be part of the conversation.
