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.
Ashtons Legal is holding a seminar on 7th November at Norwich City Football Club on the subject of GDPR, presented by James Tarling.
James Tarling (right) 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 six 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 and HR, and data custodians within any 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 Ashtons Legal.
