On May 25, 2018, the most significant piece of European data protection legislation in 20 years will come into force when the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the 1995 Data Protection Directive. We know that preparing for this regulatory change is a priority for many of our customers. It is a priority for us, too.
The new GDPR law cannot be ignored, nor can the fines for non-compliance or data breaches. We want to help you understand fact from fiction, what GDPR and Data Protection means and what happens if you don’t do anything. That’s why we have brought in lawyer Matthew Holman, Principal at EMW Law LLP. He will be on hand to answer as many of your questions as he can.
This webinar is relevant to all professionals who use, collect, control or process any form of personal, or sensitive customer data.
Please be aware, that the content of this webinar does not constitute legal advice but is meant to help your understanding.
