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 biggest risks when it comes to personal data is the most pragmatic approach in the little time you have left.
The roadshow events 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. We’ll also look at the specific documentation you need to have in place, should you face an external audit.
This roadshow follows on from our last GDPR event in November “How law firms can build a roadmap to compliance”. This time we'll be covering new, practical and timely advice for firms as we draw ever closer to the deadline. Our previous event was extremely popular and over-subscribed, so please book early to ensure your place.
