GDPR Event on 31 January 2018: what does it mean for my business?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018 after a two year “grace” preparation period. However, many organisations (big and small) are behind in planning towards this deadline and are only now waking up to its realities and consequences.
The GDPR places far greater requirements on companies to manage their data, expands the scope of coverage significantly and can trigger substantial punitive measures for non-compliance. As an example, data controllers cannot “contract” out their accountability to data processors as the new regulations require joint and several liability. Accordingly, knowing how to adhere to the new regulations in a timely, practical, and affordable manner will be key to meeting your requirements without undue burden.
Data is a vital part of your business and safe keeping of that data is of utmost importance in order to protect financial interests, maintain regulatory compliance, and to protect your company brand and reputation. Whether you are a business owner, IT manager or marketeer, this event will help you:
- Understand how GDPR applies to you and your business.
- Gain pragmatic compliance advice, an action plan and practical steps to ensure readiness.
- Highlight pitfalls to avoid along your journey.
- Communicate, plan and execute your changes.
- Confirm what you should expect to achieve by May 2018.
‘GDPR: what does it mean for my business?’ will run from 6pm to 7pm on Wednesday 31 January 2018 and costs £10 per person. The event includes refreshments and a GDPR action plan. Visit the Eventbrite page for more details and to book tickets.
