Coun­cil for Busi­ness with Bri­tain or­ga­nizes break­fast ses­sion on GDPR com­pli­ance

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - LIFE -

With an in­creas­ing con­cern about Gen­eral Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion, many may be un­der the mis­con­cep­tion that it does not have a sub­stan­tial ef­fect on their com­pany.

How­ever it is nec­es­sary for com­pa­nies that are en­gaged in do­ing busi­ness with Euro­pean com­pa­nies to com­ply with these new reg­u­la­tions.

In or­der to com­ply, lo­cal com­pa­nies need to be aware of how to com­ply, and the ben­e­fits of GDPR com­pli­ance. A few ben­e­fits are that Euro­pean com­pa­nies will pre­fer do­ing busi­ness with com­pli­ant busi­nesses, trust is built, the Euro­pean sup­plier is not put at risk of be­ing fined for deal­ing with a non-com­pli­ant Sri Lankan com­pany, and the com­pany will have a mar­ket ad­van­tage over com­peti­tors.

Ow­ing to the com­plex­i­ties of com­pli­ance, the Coun­cil for Busi­ness with Bri­tain has or­ga­nized a break­fast ses­sion aim­ing to pro­vide busi­nesses a sim­pli­fi­ca­tion of the guide­lines to fol­low.

The ses­sion will cover the new con­sumer rights, do’s and don’ts when com­ply­ing, what you have to do to com­ply (if you need to), and where to get ex­pert as­sis­tance.

The ses­sion will be held on June 14th at Ho­tel Colombo Res­i­dences com­menc­ing at 07.30 a.m. For reg­is­tra­tion email cher­ryl@cham­ber.lk
