GDPR seminar training session


BUSINESSES looking for a better understand­ing of the new GDPR regulation­s coming into effect from the beginning of May are invited to a free training seminar taking place on Tuesday morning.

Barclays Bank, LAUDIS Business Advisors, and Trident Assurance Services are leading the session aimed at explaining what businesses need to know about the new Data Protection Legislatio­n.

This replaces the Data Protection 1998 Act and aims to provide a comprehens­ive legal framework for data protection in the UK. It will be supplement­ed by the EU General Data Protection Regulation­s (GDPR), which come into force on May 25.

The seminar will explain the changes and give a general overview of the Data Protection Bill and the GDPR and how they will affect most organisati­ons.

There will also be guidance for implementa­tion from the Informatio­n Commission­er’s Office.

While the UK is an EU member, all obligation­s of EU membership remain in force (accordingl­y, GDPR comes into force in May). When the UK leaves the EU, the ‘applied’ GDPR will be incorporat­ed into the UK’s domestic law under the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, currently before Parliament.

This seminar is delivered by Trident Assurance Ltd’s senior consultant, Brian Penfold, who is a certified GDPR practition­er with more than 30 years’ experience in risk management, safety, compliance and assurance in highly-regulated environmen­ts.

It is organised by the

Thames Valley Berkshire Business Growth Hub and takes place at Bracknell Enterprise & Innovation Hub, Ocean House, The Ring in Bracknell.

Registrati­on is at 8.45am and the session runs until 11.30am.
