Last week we conducted a GDPR Workshop in collaboration with the renown solicitors Harrison Clark Rickerbys. For those who may not know GDPR is a new legislation that is being enforced on the whole of Europe on the 25th May 2018. This new legislation aims to change the way organisations handle and process the data of EU citizens, granting them new rights over their personal data.
"Presentations and slides were great and easy to understand, I feel less worried about GDPR than I did before attending"
Collaboratively we covered GDPR without the boring bits or scare tactics, focusing on the whys and hows along with the legal and cyber elements of the new legislation, being enforced on the 25th May 2018. Giving actionable steps for our attendees to take and apply to their own business.
"Very informative and personal all my questions and more were answered"
The workshop was led bySteve McGowan our lead consultant on data security and compliance at ATG-IT and Robert Cobley, a partner at Harrison Clark Rickerbys. Both have a vast amount of experience in the IT industry and their combined expertise make them perfect in tackling the key areas of GDPR.
Here are some of the companies we had attend.
