Our Recruitment specialist, Alex Dean, will be giving a lunchtime talk to business professionals on Friday 29 March. Alex will be presenting on “GDPR and Cyber Liability: are you covered?” at a networking lunch hosted by The Curry Club in London.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on the 25th May 2018 and will replace the current Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), with a major overhaul of existing data protection rules.
Whilst the GDPR reaffirms much of the old data protection regulations there are additional requirements imposed such as the obligation to notify the Information Commissioner’s Office in the event of an unencrypted data loss; notification may also include contacting the data subjects directly. The cost of which can be substantial.
Organisations need to ensure that they are sufficiently protected against the cost of notification, rectification and most importantly, the reputational harm data loss can cause.
The Curry Club hold networking events across the UK for professionals to meet other industry specific decision makers.
