A recent survey conducted by data management firm Veritas has revealed that less than one third of organisations believe they are ready for the GDPR.
To help you to avoid the steep fines associated with non-compliance, as part of the Macildowie 'Academy' series of events, we are bringing together two subject matter experts to explain precisely WHAT it is as well as giving practical, top level, advice on HOW to ensure that you and your business are compliant.
In simple, layman's terms, if you hold a database containing details of candidates or customers – you need to know about the GDPR.
Failure to comply with the new terms of the GDPR will incur steep financial penalties.
