The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has significantly reshaped the data protection landscape for organisations worldwide that collect and process EU residents’ personal data. The Regulation imposes fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (whichever is greater) for non-compliance.
Data breaches are on the rise and affecting Irish organisations such as Eir, which recently suffered a breach affecting up to 37,000 customers. It’s time your organisation took the GDPR seriously and began implementing a compliance plan.
To help organisations in Ireland on their journey to GDPR compliance, IT Governance Europe is delighted to launch a new GDPR webinar series. It’s delivered by Alice Turley, one of our highly experienced data protection consumer protection and compliance consultants, who has a track record in providing expert and solution-based advice to Irish businesses.
Join Alice for our first webinar, ‘First steps to GDPR compliance’, in which she will take you through the initial steps towards achieving GDPR compliance, including:
