“The most important change in data privacy law in twenty years”

The UK government has confirmed that GDPR implementation will come in to force on the 25th May 2018 . This will have a huge impact on employers and will affect  all organisations no matter what size. As employers it is imperative that your preparations start now to ensure that your policy and procedures are legally watertight and ICO compliant by the May 2018 deadline as a failure to do so can have serious punitive financial and reputational consequences.

This workshop will provide in-depth hands-on practical advice and strategy, led by top GDPR and legal experts to ensure you receive all the essential information you require to ensure your organisation is prepared and compliant by May 2018.

This workshop will provide delegates with:
* A practical action plan to write, implement and embed your GDPR policy company-wide
* An understanding of the implications and impact of GDPR on their organisation
* Effective strategies to plan and manage a comprehensive audit of their current position
* A thorough overview of the legal issues involved, implications to your organisation and how to ensure compliance
* Key areas your policy must cover in order to make it workable
