Event description
Our next Step Up webinar - learn about GDPR compliance and how placing data at the heart of product design can save you time and effort

About this event

Please register to attend this webinar through Eventbrite.

📽 Webinar topic:

All too often, data protection requirements and GDPR compliance are seen as, at best, a necessary evil – particularly for founders from outside the EU, who have to put in extra work just to be able to sell in the UK.

In this webinar, Mark Barrett and the data protection team at Jisc will present an alternative perspective: That placing data protection at the heart of product design ensures your product can scale more effectively, meet customer needs better, and provide an overall superior user experience, saving you time and effort down the line. This will also be an opportunity for you to spend some time with data protection experts in breakout clinics to de-mystify and get answers to any of your GDPR questions.

👫 Who is this for:

Startup founders selling to Higher Education institutions, data protection officers, and anyone in their teams involved in product design and procurement processes.
