Despite Brexit, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in the UK on 25 May 2018.

While the scope of GDPR is similar to the Data Protection Act 1998, it carries with it greater rights for individuals and broader, more prescriptive obligations for businesses.

Penalties for non-compliance increase significantly from £0.5 million to a maximum of £20 million or 4% of annual worldwide turnover, whichever is greater.

In this seminar we will help businesses to understand their new obligations and how they apply to your business. We will also look at how to plan and prepare for the GDPR.

We are delighted that Jezz Gobran from i-Secure will be joining us as our guest speaker. Jezz took his first steps in Data Protection over 10 years ago, with a focus on helping clients understand and meet their data protection obligations whilst keeping all their commercial information safe and secure.

By attending this seminar you will:-

  • Gain an understanding of the key provisions of the GDPR and what they will mean for businesses.
  • Receive guidance on how to prepare for the GDPR so you are ready to meet your obligations by May 2018.
  • Understand the implications of non-compliance
