Details

Data Protection has been around for some time but is about to become a lot tougher. The sequel is GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation and it comes into force in May 2018. It will affect you.

This insight will help you become aware of things to consider in designing and building websites, when collecting and storing data - data that could be a risk and a liability. This is about your rights too. Understanding what the regulation will give you as an individual will help provide the perspective to realise the benefits that GDPR is looking to bring about.

The presenter: Howard Elsey is a trained Data Privacy Officer and advises companies on privacy policy and product strategy.
