Event description


  • Do you process and manage personal and sensitive personal data in your business?

  • Are you concerned about the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and how it might affect your business activity?

  • Do you need advice on the best steps to take towards complying with the GDPR?

If the answer is 'Yes' to all or any of the above then you need to attend this half day workshop.

What is the GDPR?

The GDPR, a new data protection legislation which comes into effect on the 25 May 2018, will create consistent guidelines and rules across the EU aiming to address weaknesses in the organisational management of data but will also help to create opportunities for doing business easier.

From 25 May 2018 all organisations, from sole traders to large multinational companies, trading or providing services within the EU will need to implement ways to becoming GDPR compliant. This will include:

  • raising organisational awareness of GDPR and its impact

  • ensuring processes and practices are reviewed and updated accordingly

  • providing up to date and accessible policies

  • assessing the IT systems used and how to protect them from external breaches

  • understanding the rights and requests of individuals

  • understanding how to report data breaches

Although there is plenty of talk about fines for non-compliance, the main focus as a small business owner is for you to assess and implement how to become compliant as soon as possible and this workshop is designed to help you do just that!

The workshop will cover:

  • an overview of the GDPR

  • the impact on small business owners

  • requirements to becoming compliant

  • where to get information and help

  • next steps action planning

By the end of the workshop you will come away with:

  • a better understanding of what the GDPR is and how it will affect you as a small business owner

  • clear objectives of how to move forward in becoming GDPR compliant

  • useful links on where to get more information and tools to support you

  • an action plan template highlighting specific steps to take in the next few weeks

The GDPR is fast approaching and after attending this workshop you will find that there may be more for you to do than you first realised so if you do need advice and support book now to avoid disappointment!
