Understanding GDPR

Decision makers in organisations need to know how they, and the organisation they serve, can comply with the new GDPR requirements.

The new regulations will apply to you if you collect, store, transfer, share or delete personal data, or if you do that for another organisation.

At this workshop, you will learn the GDPR essentials, have access to legal experts and you will create your organisation’s own GDPR action plan.

GDPR Action Plan Workshops are led by Christine Jackson, partner, specialist GDPR adviser, and business lawyer to large corporates and SMEs.

  • How the new concepts and principles are affecting business;
