GDPR – Are You Ready?

Posted on

The Foundry presents: GDPR for SME’s – helping you to comply (DEADLINE CLOSE!)

The new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes into force across the EU on 25th May 2018. GDPR updates the current data protection laws and it is important for all businesses to be aware of how these changes will impact their day to day running.

By 25th May 2018 all businesses must be compliant with GDPR. There are, unfortunately, no exceptions.

The Foundry will be hosting Edwards & Co. Solicitors, who will be presenting a half day seminar on the legal implications of GDPR for businesses and the steps that need to be taken to ensure your business is compliant.

What will you learn at the GDPR Seminar?

  • What is GDPR?
  • How to prepare for 25th May 2018
  • What is personal data?
  • How data can or cannot be used
  • What is a privacy notice?
  • What are the penalties if I don’t comply with GDPR?

The seminar will round up with an action list for you to apply to your business to ensure you have all you need to comply.

Who should attend?

Owners and senior managers of private businesses and social enterprises, sole traders, partners and managing directors.
