General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Webinars

The GDPR has significantly transformed the global data protection landscape.

Compliance with the GDPR isn’t optional. Failure to comply can result in hefty regulatory fines of €20 million or up to 4% of annual global turnover (whichever is greater). With data breaches on the rise, now is the time to kick-start your GDPR compliance project.
