Join us for the final dinner, in our three-part series of events, on the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The series has been put together to ensure you have all the information you need before the new legislation comes into play in May 2018.

The reputation of your business is imperative, and a data breach can damage this. It is crucial that you build customer trust, and show the efforts you have made to keep their data secure.

This dinner will look at the different processes you should have in place, including which roles should be adapted, to ensure the new regulation is being adhered to throughout your business.

Once this regulation comes into play, a data breach may result in a fine of up to 4% of annual global turnover, or €20 million, whichever is higher, therefore it’s crucial you are staying ahead of the game.

We have two members of the Club attending to share their wealth of knowledge and advice with the group:

Peter Galdies is a data governance and marketing professional with over 25 years experience. Peter co-founded DataIQ, a cross-industry community of data and analytics specialists, and recently ran a series of events on the subject.

Suzanna Chaplin co-founded ESBConnect, a third party email advertising companies which deals in email data cookies. Suzanna also sits on the email council and the data protection Hub for the DMA, who is responsible for outputting guidelines for how GDPR should be addressed and implemented.

This dinner will look to explore, but will not be limited to:

  • What do you need to put in place to be compliant?
  • Do you need to a data officer?
  • What is ISO27001, and why might it be a good idea for your business?
  • How long should you be keeping data?
  • What would a data breach mean to your business?

Please note that our venues are subject to change; always refer to email reminders one week before the event and the text message reminder on the day of the event for the correct venue. Our website will also be updated in the event of a venue change.
