After joining forces with HEXAD Information Security Services we have been offering a number of free seminars and workshops concerning the new data protection laws.
We’re delighted to announce another free seminar and new dates for practical workshops in Hereford, including a more advanced session for those ready to take the next step.
GDPR changes – what it all means
From May, new data protection laws (GDPR) come into effect. These will change how you deal with an individual’s information. All businesses and charities providing goods and services to EU residents will need to conform to the new requirements. The intention of the law is to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the EU. It also covers the export of personal data outside the EU. The primary aim is to give back control to citizens and residents over their personal data. And further, to simplify regulations for international business.
Attend our free seminar for a GDPR overview
For those unsure of how the new laws will affect them, we have a further two-hour seminar on 14th February. This is FREE to attend and led by Jeremy of HEXAD and Rebecca Hardy, our Practice Director. It will outline what directors and board members can do to become and remain compliant. For further information and to book, go through Eventbrite.
More in-depth, practical workshops for businesses and charities
We will also be holding a further round of practical workshops for both charities and business on Monday 26th February. Business is from 9.30 – 12.30 and charities from 13.00 – 16.00. These are intended to provide a practical introduction to the GDPR. It uses a variety of delivery techniques. These include presentations, group-working, and a final questionnaire.
Ready for the next step? Attend our follow-up ‘advanced’ workshops, “what compliance looks like”
Organisations which have attended our previous workshops and seminars should have a good idea about how the GDPR may affect their organisation. Our new ‘advanced’ workshops build on this knowledge and aim to demonstrate the practical steps required for becoming compliant. Attendees will experience a worked example and see the specific forms and tools they can use to become and remain compliant. This workshop is taking place on Monday 5th March and is appropriate for both businesses and charities. Book your place on Eventbrite!
