This special GDPR focused breakfast on 07 September forms part of the CBI’s exclusive MSB series, which provides relevant information and shared learning for senior executives of medium sized businesses. This event, generously sponsored by BDO, replaces the previously advertised session on ‘Economy 2030'.
Are you confident that good data protection is at the centre of your business practices?
GDPR comes into effect May 2018 and represents a major revision to UK data protection law and affects all businesses that deal with personal data. By planning for GDPR, you can avoid fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover. The CBI’ Senior Digital Policy adviser, Roxanne Morrison, alongside partners from BDO are running a GDPR dedicated roundtable to help business turn this regulation into a competitive edge.
The roundtable discussion will cover:
Key changes within the GDPR
How your organisation can prepare
Influencing the UK interpretation of GDPR
Who should attend?
Representatives who have responsibility for managing data protection in their organisation. Please forward on as appropriate to relevant colleagues.
