V4B Event: GDPR – Are you ready? With Royds Withy King

On 25 May 2018 the law in relation to data protection is changing. All organisations are affected by the change and will need to take steps to ensure they are compliant. If you are already compliant with the Data Protection Act, this will be a good start, but there will still be changes you need to make and new documents you need to produce.

There is a lot of information available but also a lot of confusion about what practically you need to be doing. This interactive session will provide you with an overview of the key legal principles, but also provide practical advice through worked examples to help you ensure your organisation is compliant.

Join Vale4Business and Royds Withy King to find out more about the new law, and how your business can be compliant.

EVENT SOLD OUT – Email info@vale4business.com to be placed on a reserve list for the event. With sufficient numbers we may run a second session on an alternative date.
