GDPR Workshop for Businesses

Jan 22, 2018

The Centre for SME Development is delighted to invite you to their next event, hosted in association with HM Network. The event will take place on Tuesday 20th 2018 at 4:30pm-6:30pm in the Media Factory at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), Preston.

The topic of the event is the forthcoming GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) - a new regulation which is set to replace the current Data Protection Act on 25th May 2018. Whether you run a marketing company, store customer data on a loyalty card, have XLS spreadsheets of names and addresses it WILL affect your organisation in some way.

GDPR is not just about IT or HR or Marketing. Everyone in a business plays a part and existing cultures will need to change.

Will it affect my business?

This will affect all businesses that hold or process personal / customer / staff data. Whether you market to customers, hold staff records or collect/process personally identifiable information, this will affect you in some way.

This workshop will help you to understand how your business can become GDPR ready. Join us to hear from expert speakers and enjoy an interactive Q&A where you can learn more and ask questions about the impact of the GDPR, how your business can introduce these changes, and what you need to do in order for your business to become (and remain) compliant.

Please book your place here

Please note that due to construction works at UCLan, parking is available on nearby Walker Street car park at a cost of £2. Tea and coffee will be available.
