“Data protection and your business”
An introduction / why data protection is important
- The responsibilities that companies have towards data protection
- Some of the risks associated with poor data protection procedures
- Some of the solutions to mitigate against these risks
- Upcoming changes to regulations and what they mean for business
Personal data is an increasingly important resource for companies. Smart businesses use data to grow their business through improving the services that they provide to their customers.
But poor management of personal data and not following basic common sense data protection rules could lead to a loss of customer trust, reputational damage, regulatory investigation and even a fine.
At the business breakfast I will explain your responsibilities towards data protection and practical solutions to manage them.
With new legislation, the General Data Protection Regulations, being implemented in May 2018 there has never been a more important time to ensure that you are getting data protection right.
