Free GDPR Event for Donegal Businesses | 14th March 2018

There are only three months left to make sure your business is ready for the GDPR. If you’re feeling confused, worried or just plain overwhelmed by what needs to be done – don’t worry. At Gibson & Associates Solicitors, we’ve got both your and your business’s backs.

To help you and your business with the transition, we’re running a unique and completely free GDPR event for Donegal-based businesses at 5 pm on Wednesday 14th March in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny.

Our event will explain everything you need to know about GDPR. This will include myth-busting, clarifications and provide you with clear action points that will help you become compliant and protect your business.

Who will the GDPR Affect?

The GDPR comes into force across Europe on the 25th May 2018. By this date, every business holding data in the EU will need to comply with the new guidelines in order to avoid eye-watering fines.

The law change will affect anyone who handles the personal data of EU citizens. It’s a significant legislation change for any organisation, business or charity that handles the personal data of individuals that are either employed or related to that organisation in any way. It’s really important that you understand how GDPR will affect your business. (You can find more information on the new guidelines here.)

The GDPR Repercussions for Non-Compliance

Failure to comply with the GDPR could cost your business up to €20 million or 4% of your company’s total annual revenue – whichever is greater – so it’s crucial that your business is prepared as soon as possible.

There’s currently a lot of confusing and contradictory GDPR advice being thrown around in the run-up to the deadline. Many companies find themselves confused about what changes they need to make. That’s why we want to clear the air and make sure you understand exactly what legal and technological implications the GDPR will have on your business.

Free Legal & Technological Advice on the GDPR

In partnership with Irish IT security experts tec support, our seminar will tackle GDPR from a legal and technological standpoint.

As the legal experts, we’ll focus on how you can improve your internal processes to ensure legal compliance with the GDPR while the seminar will also touch on how to optimise your general IT security. We’ll also clarify any confusion surrounding the new data protection, making sure you leave with clear action points to take away and apply to your business.
