Workshop overview


It’s only 3 months until the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect. However, many businesses do not feel confident or have a plan in place. For many businesses, data management processes, policies and procedures have not kept up with the rest of the business. In fact, 87% of businesses say they do not feel confident about meeting the new GDPR requirements.

If you are yet to get a plan in place, this GDPR workshop is for you. It’ll cover all the basics, provide you with some useful templates and give you an opportunity to get any of your questions answered – all in one day.
