GDPR Accountability in Healthcare


Since the introduction of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018, and it’s more recent morphing into the UK GDPR more recently, all organisations have been required to demonstrating accountability to the regulation’s six key principles.

This course will help key players in healthcare organisations understand what this means for them and how to achieve it. 

It will reflect for healthcare on what the Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, said in 2019 at the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) annual Data Protection Practitioners’ Conference:

“Accountability encapsulates everything the GDPR is about. It enshrines in law an onus on companies to understand the risks that they create for others with their data processing, and to mitigate those risks. It formalises the move of our profession away from box ticking or even records of processing, and instead seeing data protection as something that is part of the cultural and business fabric of an organisation. And it reflects that people increasingly demand to be shown how their data is being used, and how it’s being looked after.” - Elizabeth Denham
