There is now a steady drip-feed of stories about companies that are being fined or inconvenienced because they have got it wrong with data and what you should and shouldn't be doing. Staying on the right side of the legislation is not difficult if you know how GDPR applies to your business.

What is GDPR? The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU). GDPR became enforceable on May 25, 2018.
This workbook-based seminar dispenses with scaremongering and hysteria and provides practical help on how to develop your business-specific plan to implement GDPR. You will go through a structured work book on this subject giving you a full insight into what your business needs to do. It will almost certainly take considerable time to achieve what is required, so it is crucial that you are able to demonstrate a sound and considered plan of how you are going to become compliant - we will set you off on the journey to develop that plan.
Attendees will leave this 2½-hour workshop a detailed picture of what they need to do in their Business from a general, an HR and an IT perspective to comply with the GDPR. The event is built around:
Presentations demystifying the GDPR and outlining the key steps towards compliance from Business Doctors (General) and Logiplex Solutions (IT).
A GDPR workbook to take away and use to build your business GDPR and information management plan
Journal Record Booklet - this will provide you a valuable record demonstrating the actions you are taking to become compliant. This is the evidence that you will give to the ICO, your key customers and your people to show that you have a sound plan.
Jargon Buster - to demystify the fearmongering and help you understand what GDPR means for you
Certificate as evidence of your first step towards compliance.
There are no generic answers and every business' plan will be unique.

"I just wanted to let you know that the workshop was so helpful. I am a sole trader and felt overwhelmed by the requirements for the GDPR.

The workshop was very good. It provided me with information to allay my worries about GDPR and I would highly recommend it."
