Get a head start on new EU data legislation with a ‘FastTrack to GDPR’ seminar that will get you ahead of the pack in more ways than one.

 


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU initiative intended to strengthen and unify data protection regulations when it is introduced in May 2018.

The event, organised by Inspired Technology Services at Kent’s Buckmore Park kart circuit, will bring managers up to speed on changes to data protection and help them get their cyber security measures into top gear.

Speed fix

This is followed by an optional session on the kart circuit with the first 20 people to book a place at the seminar getting their speed fix free of charge.

The speakers at ‘FastTrack to GDPR’ are Paul Wells, a vulnerability scanning specialist from Whitstable-based Inspired Technology Services and Amanda Okill, Furley Page employment law specialist, who will discuss the human resources aspects of cyber security for businesses. Also taking part are Joe Gaunt, GDPR practitioner from Cybercrowd and Neil Martin from Panda Security, whose Adaptive Defense 360 cyber security platform has a 0% infection record.


Ian Burns

Ian Burns, Director at Inspired Technology Services, says: “We have been asked by many of our clients about cyber and data security, especially in regard to the upcoming GDPR legislation. We believe these are not solely IT issues and that businesses would benefit from an informative session covering these topics from a business and HR perspective as well as technical.

“That’s where the idea for Fast Track to GDPR came from. Working alongside compliance specialists, legal experts and modern security vendors we wanted to put together a seminar that could help businesses keep informed of these issues and network with each other.”

The ‘FastTrack to GDPR’ seminar on August 17 will be most suitable for senior managers and directors with an interest in data protection and cyber security and the risk they pose to running a business.

Registration is at 9.45am and the event lasts from 10am until lunchtime. It is free to attend but bookings must be made in advance at http://www.fasttracktogdpr.co.uk/  , by emailing info@fasttracktogdpr  or calling 03333 202912. When booking, please indicate if you are interested in a karting session at lunchtime. Remember, the first 20 to book will get their karting session free.
