Description

Are you GDPR Ready?

Described by the Information Commissioner as “the biggest change to data protection law for a generation”, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) updates the UK’s data protection laws, bringing them up to date with the 21st century and in line across Europe. But with the compliance deadline approaching fast, is your business prepared? Have you got a plan of action in place to make sure you’re ready for 25th May?

If you process personal data (which could be data relating to your clients, your employees, or even the businesses you work with) then GDPR applies to you. Compliance is about making sure you understand the GDPR, what it means for your business, and putting in a plan of action to meet compliance as well as manage ongoing compliance. So, join this workshop to find out what the GDPR means to you and some practical tools and tips to help you be compliant.
