You’ve probably heard about GDPR, the upcoming overhaul of Europe’s data protection rules, and what you’ve probably heard is a load of rubbish. We’re going to help you to separate the fact from the fiction by walking you through what the new rules mean for you. Take an hour to learn what you’ll need to do to bring your web sites and your businesses into healthy compliance.
