GET TICKETS for this course

Purpose of the Course

The European Union General Data Protection Regulations (or the EU GDPR) will replace the current UK Data Protection Act. It will impact all organisations, regardless of size and sector and will determine how we manage data both online and offline.

UK businesses will need to be compliant when the new legislation becomes law on 25th May 2018. This interactive workshop will use business scenarios to introduce the new legislation and will provide an overview of the steps that businesses will need to take to become compliant.

If you need help with the HOW to make sure you are ready for GDPR or just need a better understanding of the evidence you will need for GDPR, this full-day training is ideal for you.

This course is especially suitable for small businesses and sole proprietors.

 

Course Duration: 1 Day – 21st June 2018 @ 09:00 to 16:30
