As a council, we want to ensure that departments across Welwyn Hatfield BC consider local businesses and the economic impacts of the decisions we make. Our regulatory services are business friendly; we continue to develop an on-going dialogue with local business representatives, and are committed to supporting them on procurement and commissioning training and advice.
Michael Scutt, Partner & Head of Employment and Dispute Resolution at Crane & Staples will present on 'GDPR: What does it mean for your business and how do you ensure you are compliant by 25 May 2018'.
If your business processes personal data (i.e. any data relating to a data subject and from which he/she can be identified) within the EU, you should take steps to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Processing data, could be by collecting personal data via an enquiry form on your website, using email marketing to target new customers or communicating with existing clients or outsourcing your payroll or pension provision. Failing to comply could lead to fines up to €20m or 4% of your global annual turnover - whichever figure is larger. However, failing to comply is not simply a financial matter, it could have a significant impact on your organisation's reputation. This event will answer all your questions and ensure you understand the steps you need to take to be GDPR compliant.
