General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Webinars

The GDPR 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 higher) for non-compliance, grants extended rights to data subjects and allows data subjects to bring legal action against organisations in the event of a data breach.

Join IT Governance Europe as we explore the importance of risk assessments to achieve GDPR compliance, and what has happened since GDPR came into force almost 12 months ago.
