IoD Hertfordshire - Data Protection: The potential IMPACT of GDPR on Directors

29 Sep 2017
Veale Wasbrough Vizards , Watford

The Impact of GDPR on Directors

The General Data protection regulation (GDPR) will take effect in May 2018 and despite voting to leave the EU, all businesses need to think seriously about data protection of customer, supplier and employee information. 

As a Director, can you identify personal data, what it is being used for and how secure your information systems are? Failure to comply with the new legislation will mean businesses can face harsh penalties. At a time when the ICO recommends directors are held personally responsible for data breaches by their companies, being aware of the new regulation and what it means for your business is vital.

Join IoD Hertfordshire for this engaging and informative event on GDPR and reshape the way you approach data privacy to protect yourself and your business.
