For further guidance please contact : Caroline J. Britten - Data Protection Officer (DPO) Tel: 07545923325 Email: cbritten@independentvetcare.co.uk INSIDE THIS ISSUE Introduction Hot Topic - Phishing For IT Support Tel: 01225 489810 Email: support@independentvetcare.co.uk Hi Everyone, I started with IVC in January as Data Protection Officer. It’s been great meeting people and thank you for the warm welcome from everyone I’ve met so far. I’d also like to Introduce our new Chief Information Officer (CIO) Ashley Hewson. He’s working hard to get to meet everyone so I’m sure you’ll see him soon. Also, Lesley Houlton has come on board as our PMO and Systems Manager and Phill Cook as the Head of Business Systems. A very warm welcome to the new members of the team. There are lots of questions about the changes in legislation from the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) to the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (GDPR) commencing 25 th May 2018. I’ve attached a quick guide to highlight some of the high level changes – print it out and pop it on your notice boards as a reminder. There is lots of work going on in the background as we prepare for the ‘Go Live’ date, if you are not sure, please get in touch. As I’ve been introduced to and met with lots of people over the last couple of weeks, one of queries that has come up often in the last couple of weeks has been about email security and ‘phishing’ emails. There will be a ‘Hot Topic’ section every bulletin and where possible I’ll include a guide or advice about the queries that get asked about most often – let me know if you’d like a subject highlighting. Regards, Caroline Page 1 of 2
