Find out more about virtual attendance

This virtual conference focuses on Information Governance in Health and Social Care, ensuring demonstrable compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and moving beyond baseline compliance to delivering accountability with a real evidenced understanding of the risks to individuals in the way data is processed and how those risks should be mitigated. This conference will begin with an opening address focusing on Information Sharing, GDPR and COVID-19, the current situation and also moving forward beyond the pandemic.

Information sharing must be done differently to support the fight against COVID-19 and to protect citizens compared to ordinary times. Information may need to be shared more quickly and widely across organisations than normal, or different types of information may need to be collected and used… The COVID-19 response has proven just how effective our confidentiality safeguards are, and how quickly laws and clauses supporting the sharing of confidential patient data in a time of crisis can be activated.

Dame Fiona Caldicott, National Data Guardian April 2020

What is appropriate during a public health crisis to meet the overriding need to protect the public against a dangerous disease may not be appropriate when the danger recedes. However, some of the changes that were expedited by the impetus to improve data sharing rapidly may be very beneficial and should be maintained. There must be careful consideration of which of the temporary measures cease, and which are continued.

Dame Fiona Caldicott, National Data Guardian May 2020
