12 Sep 2017
Following July's jam-packed seminar focusing on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are delighted to announce that we are running a second date of this popular session which will take place on Tuesday 12th September in Leeds.
Data protection expert Gareth Yates will take you through the key issues regarding GDPR that you need to be prepared for when it comes into force on in May 2018.
We will also be joined by accountancy firm Mazars who will discuss the subject of Cyber Security – providing you with vital information about ransomware, hacking, security and encryption.
Why so important?
The General Data Protection Regulation will apply from 25th May 2018. It represents a significant tightening of how many businesses will be required to manage their business lifeblood – data – with much stiffer penalties if they breach. Is your business prepared?
The session will discuss many important questions including:
- What does GDPR mean to my business?
- What things do I need in place by next year to comply?
- Do I need to appoint a Data Protection Officer?
- What will constitute a breach, and what will I be required to do?
- What rights do individuals have?
The ICO has been issuing ongoing and updated information over the course of the last year, and this seminar will provide a perfect opportunity to find out the latest guidance behind this significant change in legislation. Hear from partner Gareth Yates, who is working on GDPR audits and compliance programmes with a number of businesses, and who can bring those experiences to bear on this session.
Who should attend?
Aimed at senior management and in-house counsel, this seminar will help inform you, and enable you to assess the real impact that GDPR is likely to have on your own business.
