GDPR the clock is ticking: free seminar in Norwich for care providers

Ashtons Legal are holding a free seminar aimed at care providers about the new data protection regulations (GDPR) which come into force in May.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in May 2018. This new law gives individuals new rights and substantially increases the penalties for non-compliance. The GDPR applies to any organisation which processes data about individuals whether personnel, customers, prospects, website users or others.

James Tarling is a Partner at Ashtons Legal. He is an experienced lawyer who has specialised in helping businesses develop compliant data management systems and processes, as well as helping organisations manage data breaches.

In this practical session James will be cutting through the myths and misinformation about GDPR and will concentrate on the key issues that you need to know and what you need to do. The GDPR is an important change to existing data protection law requiring action from businesses and organisations. However, the good news is that James will guide you through the steps that you need to take now to ensure that your business complies when the GDPR comes into effect this May.

The seminar is free to attend and plenty of tea, coffee and cake will be supplied.

Date and venue: Tuesday 6th March – Holiday inn Norwich Airport (please note this was originally to be held at Norwich City FC bu has been moved)

Who should attend?

Care home owners, managers and those responsible for IT, HR and any data custodians within their business, whether large or small.
