GDPR – Love it or Loathe it

At our member event recently in Plas Y Brenin we heard from Ron Ruston at Kennedy’s Law who gave us a light hearted talk on GDPR and what organisations need to know about the new regulations.

There were some excellent points which came out of the discussions and many members asked us to share the slides so they could use these when they got back to their place of work.

In brief what you need to know is:-

GDPR comes in to force on 25th May 2018 and will build on the current Data Protection Regulations 1998

What does it mean?

It means you have to manage and protect personal data that you hold

Why do we need to comply?

  1. To avoid potentially heavy fines from the Data Commissioner
  2. To reduce risk of legal action from the individuals in the event of unauthorised use
