Do you understand how the new General Data Protection Regulation will affect your business? Are you confident that your data management systems are compliant? Do your staff have the knowledge and skills needed to implement the changes? If you cannot answer yes to these questions, then you need to attend our FREE General Data Protection Regulation breakfast briefing session.

  • Give you an overview of the changes being made to the data protection legislation
  • Highlight your legal responsibilities and the penalties that can occur if you fail to comply with the changes
  • Allow you to understand the impact the new legislation will have on your organisation
  • Help you plan for the introduction of the changes by detailing the actions that need to be taken

"The Breakfast Briefing gave me the opportunity to update my skills in a very practical and concise way. The content was relevant to my organisation and was delivered by an obvious expert. Attending the breakfast meeting also gave me the chance to network with other businesses and gain some valuable contacts."
