General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018. If you are unprepared, this regulation could have a drastic impact on your business and how you collect data. The regulation creates significantly more rights and protections for data subjects, and imposes heavy fines on businesses that fail to comply.
The changes you may have to make to comply with GDPR include:
- Assessing and justifying all of your data collection
- Revising your privacy, data protection and cyber security policies
- Designing systems for new data rights including the right to be forgotten and the right to data portability
- Appointing a Data Protection Officer and implementing a “privacy by design” process
The webinar guides you through the first steps you need to take to become compliant. It will help you understand how the changes under GDPR will affect your organisation and how you should begin planning.
