GDPR workshop helps companies avoid hefty data breach fines

Businesses will be equipped with insights on how to avoid falling foul of stringent new data protection rules at a breakfast workshop in Doncaster on March 9.

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) - the biggest overhaul of data legislation in a generation - come into force across the EU on May 25, 2018.

Companies can incur fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual turnover, whichever is greater, for non-compliance of the rules which are enforced by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO),

The session, hosted by hlw Keeble Hawson, and presented in partnership with IT solutions and support specialists, Genesis Business Systems, also includes a Q and A with the panel of experts. 

Sarah Power, associate solicitor in hlw Keeble Hawson’s litigation and dispute resolution team, said: “Every type of business will be affected by GDPR and some will have to radically overhaul the way they deal with their personal data to stay on the right side of the law.

“Our workshop will highlight key changes that will apply under GDPR, and provide guidance on the steps organisations need to take now in order to prepare for it.”

The event at Lazarus House, 14 Prince's Street, Doncaster, is free of charge. Registration and refreshments are at 8.30am, followed by speakers from 9am -11am.

Places are free but limited. To book, e-mail or call 0114 290 6230.
