The free event is being held on Wednesday 24 January between 11.30am – 1pm at Morson Group’s head office on Centenary Way in Salford.

Expert speakers include Paul Stedman, contracts and employment specialist from BBS Law and Terry Pudwell, chief executive and joint founder of Assuria Ltd. With a wealth of technical and compliance experience, the masterclass with cover topics such as:

  • How GDPR applies to you and your role.
  • Legal, technical and security insights.
  • Protecting your data.
  • Creating a robust cyber security strategy.
  • How to prevent a data breach.
  • The risks of non-compliance.

GDPR is a hot topic for all businesses, with the new regulations transforming the way companies collect, manage, share and use data. In the event of a breach, businesses face a significant fine up €20m or 4 per cent of group global turnover.

Adrian Adair, operations director at Morson International, explains: “Failure to prepare for GDPR could have serious consequences on an organisations’ profitability, employee and customer relationships, brand image and reputation, and is exactly why we already have GDPR compliant systems and processes in place as an organisation.

“We’re excited to have Paul and Terry on board to host an event that gives attendees more understanding around the legal, compliance and technical aspects of GDPR in HR and procurement. Organisations have been banging the GDPR drum for more than a year now and businesses are only just starting to do something about it. There’s still a lot of uncertainty and doubt around the new regulations and this practical event will showcase the easy and inexpensive steps you can take to make a real difference to your organisation and ultimately protect yourself.”
