Description

Are you ready for the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)?

Come and find out!

We will be going through some practical steps to help prepare your business for the new law, which comes into effect in May, focussing particularly on how "Cyber Essentials" can help.

Cyber security experts, Datamills (UK) Limited, and commercial law firm, Ironmonger Curtis Solicitors, have teamed up to provide a specialist seminar on the practical steps businesses can take to prevent data theft and to comply with the enhanced data protection requirements under the GPDR.

Toby Pochron (Associate Solicitor) of Ironmonger Curtis Solicitors will provide detailed practical guidance to cover:

  • Data protection and why it matters;
  • What is the GDPR anyway? – why is it good and why is it bad?;
  • How to avoid getting (a whopping great) fine;
  • Updating planning and procedures; and
  • Five key practical steps to take now to demonstrate compliance.

Andrew Mills, managing director of Sheffield IT company datamills, which specialises in cyber security and is a member of the Yorkshire Cyber Security Cluster. will look at:

  • Evaluating the data you hold
  • Cyber security
  • Risk management
  • Common myths surrounding the issues
  • Practical steps you can take away

This event is designed to help any growing SME looking to understand how GDPR will affect them, and how to prepare for it. The event would be best suited to business management teams.
