Data protection is common sense, yet in our experience it is not common practice in the workplace. For example, do you lock your PC/laptop screens when you are away from your desk, routinely backing up your data, delete/destroy personal data (hard copy and soft copy) that is no longer needed; what about checking emails before you send them? In our first free webinar of 2020,
Date: 20th March 2020
Time: 12:00 – 12:45
Description: Every time staff leave do they take a little part of you with them? Whilst you may not want to say goodbye to members of staff, our experience has shown that companies rarely run through a data protection exit checklist.
Description: In the first 9 months of 2019 there were 5,183 breaches world-wide, with an astounding 7.9 billion data records exposed. This is a 33% increase on 2018! It is inevitable that you will experience a data breach in your workplace. Breaches come in the form of malicious malware, phishing scams, accidental leaks/exposure, and deliberate acts of misconduct. Our webinar will draw upon real-life breach stories and discuss what the response was, what they could have done to prepare and most importantly what lessons could the business learn.

In the past 12-months businesses have been faced with implementing GDPR, as well as Making Tax Digital (for those businesses meeting the VAT threshold). Too a number of businesses both these changes have been viewed as a burden, taking individuals away from their day-to-day job.
It has been almost a year since the GDPR came into force across Europe. Do you recall being bombarded with emails asking for consent or updating you about changes to privacy policies... Many people have asked us what has really changed, questioned whether all the hype was really necessary and compared the new regulation to Y2K! Does this sound familiar to you? This webinar will address these questions.
