IoD West Midlands - Getting to grips with GDPR

27 Feb 2018
Hogarths Stone Manor Hotel , Kidderminster

With only months to go until the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in May 2018, a recent IoD survey of business leaders revealed that there are still a worrying number of companies across the country that are not aware of the costs, complexities and responsibilities associated with the new rules, which will redefine the way companies handle data and will include tougher punishments for those who fail to comply.

As such, we would like to invite you to join us at an event which aims to demystify GDPR and help members ensure they know how to be compliant in handling data. We have brought together a group of partners to cover all aspects of the process, giving you the chance to learn from and question experts in the field.

Led by the business services team from the top 100 law firm Harrison Clark Rickerbys, this interactive session takes you from a ‘how to’ starting point to a ‘can do’ level of understanding.

Our panel of experts, from local organisations such as Harrison Clark Rickerbys Solicitors, KPMG, EBC Group, IASME and IQ Verify will then answer questions and help steer us in the right direction to get to grips with GDPR.

They will cover topics such as:

  • Legal Implications and understanding the documentation
  • GDPR audits and ISO
  • Software solutions
  • Cyber Essentials

There will also be a limited amount of opportunities to book a 10 minute slot with a member of the panel after the event, from 8pm – 8.30. Please email Sue Hurrell to book your slot.
