Data Protection - General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - Let’s stop talking.. Swansea

About this event

Andrew will take us through the key parts of the GDPR that we, as small businesses, need to be concerned about. He won't be telling you all about the huge fines and how you will never do it all on a small budget. He won't be selling you expensive software either. He will dispel some of the myths that you may have heard and put everything into an achievable light.

On this short waltz through the new data protection laws (that come into force on May 25th 2018) you'll pick up tips and tricks, important information and some real practical advice that you can take away and implement in your business – the first steps toward being GDPR compliant.

You will learn about:

  • The legal basis for processing data
  • When you need consent (which isn't that often!)
  • Keeping information safe
  • All about the new rights that individuals will have
  • What documents and records you need
  • How to turn all this into a business benefit

This is a joint lecture with CMI Cymru.
