Recorded Webinar: Just days after the GDPR deadline, how did your firm cope with go live and what still needs to be fixed?

29 May 2018

The EU’s Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into play next week on Friday 25th May. Will your firm be compliant, struggling, or looking for a quick and effective fix?

Hosted by A-Team Group just a few days after the GDPR deadline, this webinar will review how things went at go live, identify ongoing challenges and discuss a quick start service that can help firms achieve not only GDPR compliance but also a 360-degree view of clients and user data.

The scope of GDPR is broad, meaning firms that control or process data relating to EU and non-EU citizens residing in the EU must deal with complex requirements governing personal data. They must also provide evidence of consent for use of an individual’s personal data and meet requests from individuals to delete and correct errors in the information. Regulators are also on the case, requiring copies of data on demand.

The penalties for non-compliance with GDPR are eye-watering, ranging up to €20million or 4% of worldwide turnover, a financial fine no organisation wants to incur. Whether firms were compliant or not on the deadline data, many will be looking for a more efficient, strategic solution going forward.

Listen to the webinar to find out about:

  • GDPR go live on 25th May
  • Ongoing data management challenges
  • How to avoid penalties of non-compliance
  • A 30-day quick start, low risk compliance service
  • Benefits of the quick start approach
