Event description

Description

Already started your journey towards compliance? or heard about GDPR but not sure if you need to do anything or even where to start? Join us at our workshop in Bromsgrove for a session in simplifying your journey towards compliance.

The workshop will be hosted by:

  • Steve McGowan, lead consultant on data security and compliance at ATG. Steve has been in the IT industry for nearly 20 years, from build tech through to engineer he now focuses on helping businesses stay secure from modern cyber threats and protecting their data through technology, processes, risk management and training. He hates boring slides, stock images and bullet points. So will try to keep them to a minimum!

  • More TBA

Here's what we will be covering:

  • GDPR (Without the Scare Tactics and Boring Bits!): The 25th May 2018 deadline is approaching soon and we're sure you're bored of hearing about the 40 million Euro fines, and that “if you buy this firewall all your problems will be solved”. In this session, we'll look at the key elements of GDPR, what you need to do and how you can approach it strategically. What if we saw GDPR as an opportunity?
  • Cyber Security: Daily we see cyber attacks in the press. The NHS, Sony, TalkTalk, Equifax to name a few. What if you're not a big business like them? Do you still need to worry about it? Well, the answer is yes. Small and medium businesses like us are at biggest risk from attack from cybercriminals. We'll look at why. Cybercrime is extremely lucrative, breaches frequently result in a financial cost to the business. Among the 46 percent of businesses that detected breaches in the last 12 months the average business faces costs of £1,380 - £3,070 (NCSC, 2017). With criminals now understanding the value of data to organisations, this is set to rise.

After party? Ok, there isn’t a party…but you will also have the opportunity to meet with the experts after the workshop to discuss any specific concerns that you may have in this area.

Breakfast will be provided and it will be a great opportunity to network with your peers... register today!

In the meantime, have a look at our GDPR blog series which is a great starting point for anyone wanting to know more about the new legislation.
