Book now for the GDPR Seminar

FGS GDPR Maze Social Media

On Thursday 22nd February, FG Solicitors will be giving businesses a chance to gain a better understanding about GDPR; a UK data protection law that will affect every business.

FG Solicitors, in line with its continuing dedicated support to employers, will be hosting a series of seminars to be held between now and the 25 May 2018 designed to support employers in ensuring that they are prepared for the significant changes that the GDPR will bring.

UK Data protection law will fundamentally change on 25th May 2018 when the current Data Protection Act 1998 is replaced by the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Now this is YOUR chance to find out what impact it will have on you as an employer and on your business.

So what can you expect at the seminar?

The seminar will focus on the application of the GDPR to employers and what they should be doing now to prepare, and in particular, will cover:

  • Key differences between the current and new data protection regimes;
  • ‘Brexit’ considerations;
  • The extended rights of data subjects under GDPR;
  • New requirements including Privacy Impact Assessments and Privacy by Design;
  • The now critical role of the Data Protection Officer;
  • The new enforcement and €20M penalties regime under GDPR; and
  • The requirement that the Data Protection Officer act as the contact point for the supervisory authority on issues related to the processing of personal data.

Floyd Graham, Principal and Founder of FG Solicitors will be the speaker of the seminar. Floyd is a dedicated employment solicitor who has practised in this area of law for over two decades providing commercially sound expertise and guidance to Employers. Floyd is considered a thinker and leading light in the employment law sphere and is a regular speaker and highly regarded commentator on the intricacies of the employer/employee relationship with a devout following.
