The EU General Data Protection Regulation, which comes into force in May 2018, introduces stronger consumer protection, with requirements for greater transparency and accountability about how data is used by businesses, not-for-profits and governments alike. The legislation places much greater requirements on businesses to communicate effectively with customers and obtain much clearer consent for the use of their data. Organisations also have to provide customer choice mechanisms and there is a greater emphasis on documenting data processing activity, together with significantly increased financial penalties. The purpose of the presentation is to provide businesses with an insight into the new legislation and the effects that it may have.
The presentation will look at what this means for your business and clarify which elements apply to your business, as well as exploring the potential risks of failing to comply.
The speaker is Simon Humphreys from South Coast Data Protection Consultants.
