The new European Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which come into force May 2018 will represent the most significant change to data privacy regulations for 20 years. With non-compliance penalties of up to 4% of global revenue or €20m, it is essential that businesses understand what is coming, the potential impact on business, and what actions are needed to ensure compliance.
Superfast Business Wales has teamed up with the two largest Cyber Security Clusters in the UK to explain exactly what GDPR is, and what business owners, Local Authorities, and professional bodies and organisations need to do to make sure they don’t get caught out.
Who does GDPR affect?
Any business which holds “personal data” on any EU citizen will need to be compliant with the new regulations.
What is classed as personal data?
Home addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, demographics, and bank details.
GDPR – Does it apply to me?
The answer to this question for most companies in the UK (including small companies!) will almost certainly be “YES.”
Join Superfast Business Wales at a special breakfast event to find out more about the potential impact and what actions are needed before the global deadline to ensure you are compliant.
