GDPR- The Lowdown
Will your organisation comply with the new data protection rules
The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world that is vastly different from the time in which the 1995 directive was established.
The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of four years of work by the EU to bring data protection legislation into line with new, previously unforeseen ways that data is now used.
Currently, the UK relies on the Data Protection Act 1998, which was enacted following the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive, but this will be superseded by the new legislation. It introduces tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gives people more say over what companies can do with their data. It also makes data protection rules more or less identical throughout the EU and will apply from 25th of May 2018.
If you haven't had chance to look at what the new General Data Protection Regulation means for you and your company Ipswich licensee Colin Hammond of Heron IT may be able to help.
Colin and his team have been running a series of training sessions which give a full understanding of the scope of the GDPR and the steps that need to be taken to fulfil obligations.
The training includes looking at practical examples and how they can be applied to your business.
If you are interested in joining a session, Colin will find a suitable date.
Places are available at £250+VAT per person for a maximum of 12 delegates.
Company sessions are also available on site.
Sessions normally run from 1pm - 6pm
The trainer is GDPR expert, Vanessa Cozens of Cyber Strategies.
