Accelerating the Path to GDPR Compliance: Are you ready to go "live"?

Course information

Brief Description

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been finally completed and it promises data protection rules that will remove red tape for businesses but also tighten privacy protections for users. One of the greatest challenge is that all EU member states and businesses will need to be in line with this regulation by 2018. Some questions to be answered though are what the significant changes are, what the challenges and opportunities are and how these will affect both individuals and more specifically our business world. The GDPR will undeniably affect the way that individuals and more specifically organisations treat, manage and maintain user (both employees’ and clients’) data.

Organisations should promptly identify how this new legislation may have an impact on their core services and daily operations. This will have different effects to organisations depending on the industry they serve. However, it must be noted that the focus should not only be in addressing the legal aspects of privacy. The GDPR stresses that organisations should be pro-active and organised in order to deal privacy matters. Most importantly, organisations should make sure that they have the technical ability to support them for this significant assignment.

The main objective of our workshop will be to provide participants with insights on how to accelerate the implementation of the GDPR since the deadline of 25 May 2018 is fast approaching.

Our course is eligible for 4 CPD Credits.
