GDPR Implementation Workshop

Tuesday, 5th June from 9.30am to 4.30pm
South Lakes Foyer, Stricklandgate, Kendal, LA9 4RA

The General Data Protective Regulation comes into effect on 25th May 2018, so if your organisation has not already made provision to comply with this new legislation, then this workshop is for you!

This one day intensive workshop is not for the faint hearted, but participants will come away with a good solid knowledge of what the new GDPR legislation is all about and be confident about the steps needed to implement a GDPR strategy for their organisation.  An assessment toolkit is also provided as part of the training.
