All you need to know about GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires businesses to manage Personally Identifiable Information in a more structured manner, ensuring that data location is known, documented and the business has permission to retain data. The GDPR comes into effect 25 May 2018 and any business can be fined up to €20million or 4% Annual Global Turnover, whichever is highest, if data is lost or misused.

Join us at this seminar and learn what you need to know about the requirements of the GDPR and the cyber-threats that pose a risk to your business. Use the opportunity to liaise directly with our expert speakers and network over lunch with other businesses in Hertfordshire who share the same issues and concerns. 

Data is most commonly lost through cyber security breach, human error or by rogue employees leaking information. 

What are the threats posed by modern cyber-crime?

Last year, 54% of businesses received some form of Ransomware of which 20% were operationally affected by it. From those attacked, 58% paid the cyber criminal’s ransom to regain access to data due to having insufficient processes in place to recover quickly enough.

There is a misconception that antivirus software protects businesses from ransomware, however hackers now use ‘multiple attack-vectors’ to compromise business IT systems rendering common anti-virus largely ineffective. Companies must be aware of the most common threats that are used to breach businesses on a daily basis and what risks can significantly affect GDPR compliance and how to mitigate them.

Our expert speakers at this seminar will reveal what you need to know about GDPR, including:

1. The key legal issues in preparing for GDPR
    Penny Bygrave, Senior Associate, VWV

2. The cyber-threat landscape
    William Osborne, Business Development Director,
    Cribb Cyber Security

3. Cyber liability insurance
    Peter Smits, Managing Director,
    Ashbourne Insurance

This information will help you counter the significant potential threats to your business and advise you on the practical steps which you should be taking now. By attending the event you will:

- Understand the impact of GDPR

- Gain insight into the cyber security threat landscape

- Reduce the risks of incurring a data breach

- Learn how to protect your business from falling foul to hackers
