General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - The Clock Is Ticking

Posted 04/10/2017 : By: Debbie Dennis

Ashtons Legal are holding free seminars about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that comes into effect in May 2018, throughout locations in East Anglia.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in May 2018. This new law gives individuals new rights and substantially increases the penalties for non-compliance. The GDPR applies to any organisation which processes data about individuals whether personnel, customers, prospects, website users or others.

Why should I attend?

James Tarling is a partner at Ashtons Legal. He is an experienced lawyer who has specialised in helping businesses develop compliant data management systems and processes, as well as helping organisations manage data breaches.

In this practical session James will be cutting through the myths and misinformation about GDPR and will concentrate on the key issues that you need to know and what you need to do. The GDPR is an important change to existing data protection law requiring action from businesses and organisations. However, the good news is that James will guide you through the steps that you need to take now and over the next 6 months to ensure that your business complies when the GDPR comes into effect next year.

Who should attend?

Business owners, managers and those responsible for IT, HR and any data custodians within their organisation, whether large or small.

These seminars are free to attend and a light breakfast will be supplied. For more information and to book please email toby.whittacker-cook@ashtonslegal.co.uk or book online here.
