The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is due to come into force on 25 May 2018, will have a major impact on the way organisations manage personal data including web privacy policies, customers’ details and employee records. The maximum penalty for businesses who do not comply is £20 million or 4% of worldwide turnover (whichever is greater).  It is understood that post-Brexit, the UK will continue to adopt a similar standard for data protection as set out in the GDPR and it is therefore important that businesses familiarise themselves with the significant changes to data protection law and start to prepare.

Relevant to all businesses, this talk will set out the key changes under the GDPR and the actions that your organisation should take to prepare.  

Speaking will be Toni Vitale, a data protection specialist and Partner at Winckworth Sherwood LLP. We will be hosted by Winckworth Sherwood - directions here
