GDPR Webinar - Differentiating Between Fact and Fiction

Date: Monday 23rd October, 2017

Time: 12:00 - 12:30

There is a lot of mis-information and various myths circulating about GDPR, the new data protection and privacy law coming into force from May 2018. The ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) are equally frustrated by otherwise responsible broadsheet newspapers and "GDPR specialist" talking in terms of all organisations needing to get 'consent' (i.e. permission) from customers if the organisation is to be able to process their personal information. This is just not correct. We also hear that all organisations will suffer €20m fines (or 4% global turnover, whichever is higher) if they are not compliant. If that were true, how come after 17,000 data protection investigations in the past 12 months, less than 0.1% ended up with a fine?

These and other items of fake news will be addressed in our upcoming GDPR Webinar - Differentiating Between Fact and Fiction, hosted by Sandy Gilchrist, who recently featured as a GDPR expert in the Business Leader magazine. Sign up and hear some really practical ways to comply with GDPR, and have the opportunity to ask questions that may have been nagging you for a while. What we've seen is a new industry of "GDPR specialists" scaremongering to throw armies of consultants at the expense of their customers - this is unhelpful and unnecessary. Sign up to get a better understanding of what challenges actually lie ahead.
