Future of Public Sector Data Protection 2020

COVID-19, and the resulting lockdown, changed the future of data protection in the public sector. With a huge increase in employees working from home and accessing data via the Cloud, new challenges arose around data protection and remaining GDPR compliant.

Holyrood’s virtual Public Sector Data Protection conference took place in October 2o20. The two-day conference brought together experts from the ICO, NHS National Services Scotland, Scottish Government and more, to discuss data protection and give delegates a clear understanding of their obligations.

The conference, now available on-demand, is useful for any public sector organisation with questions about the future of data protection in the public sector.

This is an opportunity to learn from the UK’s leading experts and examples of good practice in overcoming data-related challenges during 2020.
