  • The GDPR Countdown is on! Are you Ready? Thu 5th Oct 15:00 - 15:30

    The GDPR Countdown is on! Are you Ready?

    Root and branch data protection reform is coming under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018.  The extent of the reform means that many businesses don’t know where to start.  We’ll guide you through what this reform means for your business and give you a practical way to approach your compliance.  We will also look at the positives coming out of GDPR and how to make it work for you.  Even though this is European legislation, the Government has confirmed that it will still become law despite Brexit!  Topics for discussion include:
    - Where to start with your compliance
    - What records should you keep and what policies should you have
    - Compulsory notification of data breaches
    - What consent looks like under GDPR
    - Transparency and what you should be doing with your privacy policies
    - The Right to be Forgotten
    - Increased subject access rights
    - Fines and the ability for individuals to sue
    We’ll draw on our 20 years data protection experience, looking at key actions businesses need to take and how to navigate the pathway to compliance.
