There has been so much confusion about whether businesses are compliant with GDPR, and almost six months into the new regime the situation is not much clearer. With the threat of €20 million fines or 4% of global turnover, GDPR has certainly caught businesses by surprise.

Every single business and organisation which holds personal data is now subject to this stringent new law. But with Legitimate Interest still misunderstood in many organisations, and the prospect of receiving a Subject Access Request, what can organisations do to ensure they are meeting their GDPR obligations.

We are therefore pleased to invite you to a seminar presented by Druces LLP, Foregenix and La Playa Insurance looking at just these issues.

Our seminar will cover:

  1. Legal update: What have we learnt since May?  What have organisations been getting wrong? The practical implications of non-compliance. 
    Christopher Evans, & Neil Pfister, Druces LLP.
  2. Technology update: Are you incident ready? Would you know if your cyber defences have been compromised and could you respond if they were?
    Richard Jones, Foregenix.
  3. Insurance update: Life after GDPR – are your insurance protections fit for purpose? Matthew Clark, La Playa Insurance.

Who should attend?

Anyone who owns or is involved in the running of any business or organisation;  professional advisers to those organisations; and all those who want to understand more about the issues associated with the new data privacy regulations.
