GDPR - are you ready?

Tuesday 12th December 2017 at UKFast Campus, Manchester, Greater Manchester, M15 5QJ

This event runs from 7.30am (registration) until 9.30am (close). Follow the discussion on Twitter at #bcgdpr.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents the biggest shift in data protection in a lifetime.

Supporters of GDPR say it hands back control to consumers over the use of their personal data but for companies it means a race-against-time to become compliant.

Companies have until May 25th, 2018 to get their house in order and ensure that personal data is processed lawfully for a specific purpose. Once that purpose is fulfilled, the data should be deleted. Businesses guilty of breaching the law face fines of up to £17m (€20m) or 4 per cent of worldwide turnover (whichever is greater).

On Christmas Day there will be exactly five months left to get GDPR compliant and yet a series of business surveys have found many businesses still aren’t ready.

That’s why on December 12th BusinessCloud will be holding a special event, sponsored by Weightmans and Cascade, entitled ‘GDPR – are you ready?’ where a panel of experts will be discussing what companies need to do next.
