“General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) update”
Wednesday 14th February from 9.30am

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will replace the current UK Data Protection Act in May 2018. Regardless of the final outcome of Brexit negotiations GDPR will become UK law and creates new obligations for businesses that collect and process personal data, and allows authorities to impose fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is higher – for infringements. You will learn about:

  • Why you have to comply with the GDPR and what might happen if you don’t.
  • What can go wrong if you have poor data security and how to avoid it.
  • The GDPR’s direct effect on your business and what you should consider changing.
  • The technical and organisational measures your business will need to adopt to comply with the Regulation.
