On the 25 May 2018, the new European General Data Protection Regulations (GPDR) comes into effect. Breach of GDPR can result in significant penalties – the ICO is able to enforce fines with an upper limit of €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is the higher. Understandably this has heightened awareness of the need for businesses, no matter how large or how small, to ensure they are compliant.
During this fully funded full-day workshop, you will explore the legal requirements of GDPR and uncover what this means for you and your business.
Throughout the day you will hear examples of industry best practice, tips and solutions to help any SME navigate the new regulation and avoid the associated sanctions.
Our team of fully-funded Digital advisors will be available on the day to support you on your GDPR journey. Refreshments and a buffet lunch will be provided.
