Description

Come along to the Connect@Signal networking session and join us for a complimentary pastry or scone and a chat with your fellow entrepreneurs and business leaders.

This month’s topic is Data Protection Regulations. By May 2018 all businesses and organisations will face fines of up to €20 million if they are not compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Current data protection law was designed in the early nineteen nineties. Advances in technology such as the invention of the internet, mobile devices, and social media to name a few mean that the Data Protection Act 1998 is no longer fit for purpose.

Consequently, Europe has introduced new legislation aimed at protecting personal data in the world we’re living in today, known as the General Data Protection Regulations or GDPR.

By joining us at this session you will discover:

  • Why your organisation needs to pay attention to data protection
  • Background to the GDPR
  • The nine key changes to data protection law
  • What these might mean for your organisation

We are delighted to welcome our facilitator for this event, Orlagh Kelly. Orlagh was named as one of the top barristers in Northern Ireland in 2013, and was featured in BBC Documentary ‘Barristers’ a ground-breaking documentary giving a behind the scenes look at the job of a barrister.

Orlagh is also the founder and CEO of the only data protection training and consultancy agency in Northern Ireland. Fusing her legal background, cyber expertise and training experience, Orlagh works with companies throughout the UK to help them become fully data protection compliant.

Do not miss this opportunity to hear more about the General Data Protection Regulations and how it will affect your business.
