FREE BREAKFAST SEMINAR FOCUSES ON GDPR CONCERNS

Home / News & Opportunities / Member News

Date: 01/02/2018

Business leaders across Worcestershire are being invited to a free breakfast seminar to hear experts discuss how businesses can protect themselves and their clients against tough new data protection laws.

Worcestershire recruitment firm Workforce Staffing is hosting the seminar to support local firms around the General Data Protection Rules, also known as GDPR, which relate to laws surrounding the storage of personal data.
 
The free event will take place at Worcester’s Sixways Stadium on Thursday 8th February. It will start with breakfast and a networking session at 8:30am.
 
The seminar, being held ahead of the new rules coming in on 25 May, will cover all key topics on GDPR with speaker and industry specialist Jeff Brookes also providing a Brexit update.
 
Paul Alekna, CEO of Workforce Staffing said: “There are huge implications for businesses here in Worcester when the new laws come into force and this seminar will be essential listening for any business leader who wants to be aware of the pitfalls in the run up to May.
 
“GDPR will be a massive change for companies of any size in how they store personal data, which could be anything from home address details to financial information.
 
“There is going to be a big burden on maintaining the process and many are unware of the financial penalties if they are found to be non-compliant.”
 
Spaces for the Sixways seminar are limited and Workforce is offering the event on a first come first served basis. To book a place readers can contact Sam Clarkson through sclarkson@weareworkforce.co.uk or by calling 01527 509017.
 
Workforce has recruitment centres in Redditch, Worcester, Kidderminster, Dudley, Rugby, Coventry, Solihull and Birmingham.
 
In 2015 Workforce was voted as one of the UK’s top 100 businesses to work for in the Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies survey.
 
They specialise in supplying trained staff for sectors including logistics, transport, professional services, office, food manufacturing and manufacturing.
