GDPR Made Easy Workshop – Tuesday 18th July 2017

C2S Keeps You Better Connected, Better Informed

GDPR Made Easy Workshop – Tuesday 18th July 2017

C2S brought together Professor Richard Benham, UK Digital Leader for the Southwest region and founder of TheCyberClub, Jon Rathbone Director of Hughes Paddison & Nick Bracey Sales Director of  Brobuild to update delegates on the latest information with regard to the fast approaching GDPR requirements. We had a packed house with over 45 attendees at Randall & Payne in Cheltenham to hear what changes are coming and top tips on how to deal with the new GDPR regulations.

These new regulations will be the biggest shake up of European privacy laws for 20 years with marked change to sanctions and will apply from  25 May 2018. All organisation will have to be compliant and should start to make the changes now that are required to be in place by May 18. Professor Benham provided an overview and insights into what’s coming up and Jon Rathbone guided us through the legal requirements of this new regulation.

Many of the principles in the new legislation are much the same as those in the current Data Protection Act, so if you are complying properly with the current law, then you have a strong starting point to build from. However there are new important elements, and some things will need to be done differently. If you are unsure seeking expert advise is highly recommended or refer to the Government website https://ico.org.uk.

Companies attended included Kohler, Gloucestershire Constabulary, Corsham Institute, Clarkson Evans, Gloucestershire College, Bamboo, MA Design, Gillman’s, Attivo Group, Converge, Simplicity, RE Resource Group and many more. A very informative session with lots of questions asked and answers given.
