Organisations across the public sector are having to do more and differently to respond to the challenges of Covid-19 and resources are stretched. How should you manage the situation if something goes wrong that has regulatory, liability and employment consequences? Something like a data breach affecting service users and staff needs a swift and co-ordinated response across the board and the right responses to the data protection, employment and regulatory consequences. The specialists in Governance, Information and Public Sector Employment Law from Forbes work together to support clients to do just that. Join us for this event to get an insight into how you can improve your readiness to respond.


Slipshod Housing Association is holding its tenant engagement panel virtually using a popular video conferencing platform. During the course of the meeting, a senior member of staff carelessly shares information about tenants and breaks some sensitive news about a colleague to all the staff, tenants and stakeholders attending.

What we will cover from an Information, Governance and Employment law perspective:

  • Analysing and assessing the breach
  • Conducting your investigations – one size won’t fit all
  • Immediate steps to take to mitigate the damage(s)
  • Who do you have to tell?
  • How to take a co-ordinated approach
  • Dealing with the fallout – naming, shaming and claiming
  • Learning lessons from breaches

The workshop is aimed at operational and governance staff and managers who want to keep up to date with data protection law and developments in the housing and wider public sector with a focus on your decision-making and dealing with any fallout in the event of a data breach.

The session will be hosted via zoom where you will be able to see the panellists from Forbes (your own camera and microphone won’t be turned on). You will be able to ask questions during the webinar via the Q&A feature on zoom, or alternatively send any questions through in advance when registering.
