As the May 25th deadline rushes closer, it is vital that your organisation is prepared to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The regulation’s impact will be felt in your business, and almost every other business across the UK. From purchasing to marketing and HR to IT, GDPR will have major implications for every department.

Fines for non-compliance will increase to as much as €20m or 4% of the previous years’ global annual turnover - could your business withstand that? And if it could, will you be held responsible?

But complying with GDPR means more than just avoiding huge fines, there are also opportunities for your organisation. Your data is valuable – using it well could be a competitive advantage as you improve your processes and better serve your customers.

Despite the regulation’s imminent arrival and the very real threat of fines, there’s still time to prepare and protect your organisation.

Build your GDPR knowledge fast

GDPR Essentials - Quick Wins, Tools & Compliance is a comprehensive one-day event built to bring you and your organisation up to speed on the regulation before the 25th May deadline.

This 1-day event is packed with accelerated training and will provide you with the knowledge you need to get compliant quickly. You’ll learn from a senior data protection expert as you discover:

  • How GDPR will impact your job
  • Who must comply and who is protected
  • Quick wins for your company before the deadline
  • What Brexit will mean for GDPR

Throughout the day, your instructor will reveal the myths surrounding GDPR, so you can return to the office ready to plan your compliance.

Whether you're scrambling to comply with GDPR or need to refresh your knowledge, GDPR Essentials - Quick Wins, Tools & Compliance is your fastest way to build your skills.
