Join our Luton Linked event on Thursday, April 26th, 8.30am to 10.30am, and we will look in detail at the issue of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will affect every UK organisation holding or processing personal data.

This seminar will discuss pro-active steps businesses can take to safeguard their business and the legal obligations. It will also include advice on the type of policies, procedures and documentation businesses will need to implement before this key legislation comes into force, and how to prevent issues from arising will also be provided.
