GDPR Planning & Preparation Conference for Employers - Pre-Deadline Updates, Essential Checks and Action Plan

Date Thursday 26 April 2018
Venue London Marriott Hotel Kensington, London SW5 0TH


With a matter of weeks until the May 2018 deadline, many employers have already made great headway with their GDPR readiness, but are still needing to consolidate and finalise their preparations. For those who have barely begun, knowing which fires to fight first will be essential.

This event the 11th edition in the GDPR series that we have run will again focus on the impact of GDPR on employers and the HR function and aims to ensure delegates will maximise the little time left to demonstrate compliance by 25th May, with an essential checklist of the crucial focus areas, dispelling myths along the way.

It is imperative that your organisation is making plans and preparations to ensure that your policy and procedures are legally watertight and ICO compliant as failure to do so can have serious punitive financial and reputational consequences.

 

Why attend this crucial seminar?:
• Maximise limited time and resources to achieve GDPR compliance
• Benchmark your current efforts against a bullet-proof action plan
