*SOLD OUT* Prepare Your Business for GDPR

*Due to high demand, we will be running another event on this topic in the new year*

Join us at this Chamber Breakfast and hear from Serena Tierney, Partner at Hertfordshire-based law firm VWV.

Take the opportunity to discover how the GDPR and changes to it can affect your business as well as gaining excellent networking opportunities. 

Serena will be presenting and leading a discussion on the key changes to GDPR. The session will look at some of the practical steps which organisations should be taking now to prepare for the GDPR.

This includes considering issues such as record keeping and implementing other new systems, new roles of data protection officers, data breach reporting, higher levels of data planning and information provision to individual. In addition, specific data problem areas such as obtaining consents for marketing and employee data and the right to be forgotten.

Additional rules will also apply for data processors such as hosts and outsourced service providers. The regulators will have much greater power than ever before and people who do not comply could be fined up to €20m or 4% of annual turnover (whichever is higher).

Serena is a partner in the VWV Commercial team based in their London office. She has many years' experience working in-house at FTSE 100 companies such as Disney, Diageo and O2. This means that she understands from the client perspective what makes good legal advice.

Serena was Head of Intellectual Property for Telefónica managing their brand, technology and content around the world. The expertise gained in doing so enables her to help you use your own IP to maximum effect, whether your business is small or large.

Serena is listed for the fourth consecutive year as one of the world's 300 leading IP strategists in the peer-reviewed Intellectual Asset Management 300. Serena is also a member of the VWV Reputation Management team.
