GDPR – are you prepared?
March 19 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am
Ready for GDPR? It is right around the corner
A new data privacy law will be introduced in May. The new law is called the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and is a complete overhaul of the legal requirements which must be met by anyone involved in handling the personal data of EU citizens.
The stated aim of the regulation is to give citizens greater control over what can be done with their personal data by businesses. This will be enforced by large fines – up to 20 million euros or 4% of a company’s global turnover – for non-compliance. To avoid fines, organisations must have a clear plan of action that demonstrates our accountability on how we plan to meet these new data regulations. The Information Commissioner’s web site is full of useful guidance – www.ico.org.uk.
To help you prepare for this new regulation, the WVBA are running a breakfast seminar, details are below and I would encourage you all to attend.
