GDPR Planning and Preparation for Employers

Approx. 7.5 hours

GDPR implementation came in to force on the 25th May 2018. This has huge impacts on employers and has affected all organisations no matter what size. As employers, it is imperative that your policy and procedures are legally watertight and ICO compliant, as a failure to do this can have serious punitive financial and reputational consequences.
