Like many partners, practice and IT managers, you’re likely overwhelmed with information about the GDPR. With so much detail, mixed in with all the myths and bad advice, it can be hard to know where to focus.

If you’re not already well underway with your GDPR preparations, focusing on your highest risks when it comes to personal data is the most pragmatic approach in the little time you have left.

This event will focus on the most practical steps you can take, along with the tools you can use to quickly identify your gaps and manage your key risks from May 2018 onwards. We’ll explore technology-based risks, as well as the more common threats such as poorly informed staff and inadequate processes. And we’ll look at the specific documentation you need to have in place, should you face an external audit.


Session One:
An overview of lessons learnt from implementing data security practices and creating more risk-aware cultures.
Stevie Hazelden, Information Governance Project Manager currently working in a consultancy based role within theSolicitors Regulation Authority (SRA)

Session Two:  
How to educate your staff to reduce risk of data breach and GDPR non-compliance.
Cyber Security Expert, Melvyn White, from Webroot Cyber Security

Session Three:
How technology can help accelerate your GDPR readiness.
