Since the enactment of the Data Protection Act 1988, and with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on the 25th May this year, the legal obligations and requirements for businesses and others to safeguard personal data have grown enormously. Responsibility covers all functions associated with personal data gathering, storing, accessing, safeguarding and disposal in line with the rules of data protection legislation. Failure to comply can lead to heavy fines.

Back by popular demand after a full workshop in February, in collaboration with HAI, Anita Murphy will deliver a half-day workshop covering the GDPR and how hardware businesses can prepare for it.

Location: Hardware Association Ireland

Time: 9.30am – 12.30pm

Cost per Attendee: HAI Member – €50, Non-Member – €60
