Presented by BFA Partner Briffa
We are pleased to welcome back Briffa. Daniel Crate, Solicitor at Briffa, will present this webinar which will be held on Friday 16th September 2022 at 11am.
Join us in this live drop-in session where Briffa will explain how they can help members navigate through the complicated GDPR law and the ICO.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the toughest privacy and security law in the world. Though it was drafted and passed by the European Union (EU), it imposes obligations onto organizations anywhere, so long as they target or collect data related to people in the EU. The regulation was put into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR will levy harsh fines against those who violate its privacy and security standards, with penalties reaching into the tens of millions of euros.
With the GDPR, Europe is signalling its firm stance on data privacy and security at a time when more people are entrusting their personal data with cloud services and breaches are a daily occurrence. The regulation itself is large, far-reaching, and fairly light on specifics, making GDPR compliance a daunting prospect, particularly for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the UK’s independent body set up to uphold information rights.
Daniel will introduce Briffa in a very short presentation and then there will be an open Q&A session for all the members to ask any questions they may have.
