Matrix Recruitment Group are proud to sponsor an upcoming event organised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development on the highly topical New General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
“The new General Data Protection regulations – an update” is scheduled to take place on 9th of November 2017 at 8am in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Athlone. There will be a networking opportunity with full breakfast provided, followed by the speaker commencing at 8:30am sharp. The event is due to finish at approx. 10.00am, depending on Q&A. This CIPD event will be delivered by Eunice Delaney, Assistant Commissioner with the Office of the Data Commissioner, responsible for Education and Audit.
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will replace the existing data protection framework under the EU Data Protection Directive.
This is a must attend event for you/your organisation to understand and get an update on the regulations which are coming into place on the 25th of May 2018. It will provide insights on the practical steps you can take today in preparing for these changes as well as giving you an excellent opportunity to ask Eunice Delaney questions at the end on GDPR and will allow you to network with HR professionals.
All organisations that collect and hold personal data will be impacted by the GDPR. The new obligations on businesses that hold and store personal data on customers and clients come with significant penalties and fines for businesses in breach of the new regulations.
All companies and HR professionals need to be prepared for the introduction of GDPR and this event will give an update on the regulations and the implications for companies. With a maximum fine for breaches of the regulations at 4% of global annual turnover or €20 million – the potential implications and penalties are of concern to all sized organisations. Knowledge and preparation are key!
