DESCRIPTION

With the 25th May deadline looming before the General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) comes into force, it is vital that businesses start making the necessary preparations now to ensure they are ready in time, or risk severe financial penalties.

When handled correctly though, GDPR represents an opportunity for businesses to increase consumer trust by demonstrating that they take data privacy and security seriously.

Praetorian Security and Chat Marketing have teamed up to bring you the ‘Solving The GDPR Puzzle’ half day workshop series, where we explain the legal jargon and your responsibilities, in an easy to understand way, providing practical advice and tips that you will be able to take action on straight away.

What You’ll Learn:

  • What the GDPR legislation covers and why you can’t afford to ignore it
  • The implications for you and your business (what it *really* means)
  • The Myths & Distractions to ignore
  • The Silver Lining in the GDPR cloud
  • 4 Key areas of change
  • How to get GDPR Ready

After the workshop, you’ll:

  • Understand how this applies to you & your business
  • Know the first steps for your GDPR Ready Action Plan
  • Be able to champion GDPR Readiness in your organisation
  • Understand how much it might cost to get GDPR ready (time & money)
  • Know your obligations and responsibilities and how to manage them
  • Protect yourself and your organisation better
  • See the legislation as a positive opportunity to re-engage with your audience

Who Should Attend:

Business owners, board members, heads of department, marketing, HR & IT managers, and anyone who feels they are the only one in their organisation worried about GDPR and the impending deadline.
