Continuing our current obsession with all things GDPR, Simon will be sharing some know-how at a Byte The Book breakfast event in May. Here are all the details…
This is the first in a series of informal breakfasts run by Byte the Book at The Groucho Club for all those connected to or interested in the publishing industry.
You’ll have the opportunity to hear from industry experts about a specific topic and gain practical advice for your business. There will also be time to network with the speakers and the audience before and after the talk.
The subject of this first breakfast in the series is GDPR.
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and comes into force on 25th May 2018.
It will have significant impact on any businesses that hold personal data which means:
- Enhanced personal privacy – more rights for your customer or visitor.
- Organisations will have to have more defined processes in place for dealing with data.
- You must be more transparent as to why and how you use personal data.
- All staff need to be up to speed on the new regulations.
- Financial penalties can be imposed for breaches.
We’ll be joined by Alex Hardy (Lawyer at Harbottle and Lewis) who will talk through the legal ramifications for your business and Simon Appleby (Director of Bookswarm) who will explain what steps you or your technical team need to make in order to be compliant.
A light breakfast is included in the ticket price.
Tickets are £25 for Groucho and Byte the Book members and £35 for everyone else. All tickets can be booked via Eventbrite. Prices do not include booking fees or VAT.
