action GDPR, event


Armadillo, 3 Oct, 2017

Struggling to implement a robust GDPR plan?  Attend our action GDPR event and leave with real actions to help you achieve GDPR success.

Many of our customers have asked us to host an action GDPR event giving real advice on how to implement a GDPR plan and what actions should be taken to ensure that an organisation is GDPR compliant by 25th May 2017.

We have invited Elle Todd from legal firm CMS to speak about GDPR and the effects it will have on a business, its employees and their customers or users. She will explain the legislation in real-terms and help guide you through the legal jargon which accompanies this new regulation.

Then to provide you with some real-takeaways, Sean Remnant of Ignition Technologies will guide you through an action plan to ensure that your business stays visible and secure whilst becoming GDPR ready.

The event will take place in London during January/February 2018, and we are still researching suitable venues. If you would like to register your interest in this event, please let us know by sending an email to:  events@wearearmadillo.com

For more additional information on what the GDPR could mean for your business watch our webinar.

GDPR: What this means for your business
No industry or organisation is bulletproof when it comes to data breaches

 

Security breaches in the news over the last few years have become common place, with a vast array of business types and size being attacked. Cyber hackers are becoming more sophisticated and advanced in the way they navigate past an organisation’s defences. For the large enterprise customer, the current fines for this are small and insignificant in comparison to their size and revenue stream. This allowed for a lot of organisations to take the risk of a breach rather than fully protecting their systems to an adequate standard, deterring these hackers from getting in. Not anymore!   

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

The GDPR is a new European directive coming into force on May 25th 2018 and is set to change all this. The primary goal of GDPR is to harmonise and replace existing data protection regulations across the EU, and to ensure that organisations properly protect the personal information that they collect and store about EU citizens. The UK was a key contributor to defining the GDPR directive, and the ICO has recently confirmed that GDPR will still be applicable after Brexit. With fines that could amount to 4% of Global turnover or €20,000,000 organisations are having to take notice and fully make sure they are compliant before they receive a crippling fine.

Main points:

 A common set of guidelines to control and protect Personally Identifiable Information.

  • Covers all countries that process or hold personal data of EU citizens.
  • Comes into force on the 25th May 2018 (prior to Brexit).
  • Fines of up to 4% global turnover or €20,000,000.

Join armadillo for our informative session that will provide clear and concise guidelines on how to comply with the GDPR and protect against avoidable breaches and subsequent fines.
