Over the past year, IT Governance’s data protection and information security experts have shared – and continue to share – their understanding of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) through green papers, training courses, blogs and webinars in order to encourage organisations to start preparing for compliance with the Regulation, due to come into effect on 25 May 2018.
The GDPR creates obligations for businesses that process EU residents’ personal data and allows authorities to impose fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater – if the organisation suffers a data breach.
To help professionals involved in GDPR compliance prepare, IT Governance has launched a fortnightly webinar in which our data protection experts will share practical insights about implementing data protection controls and measures in line with the Regulation.
The webinar will be delivered by IT Governance’s founder and executive chairman, Alan Calder, on 23 May 2018 from 3:00 – 4:00pm (GMT).
This webinar will discuss:
- Why you have to comply with the GDPR and what might happen if you don’t.
- The GDPR’s direct effects on your business and the transition timelines.
- The first steps in preparing for GDPR compliance.
- The technical and organisational measures your business will need to adopt to comply with the Regulation.
- Key recommendations and industry-recognised practices to help you achieve GDPR compliance.
The webinars will take place on 23 May, and 6 and 20 June.
