Business week seminar to look at practical implications of gdpr

Law firm Andrew Jackson Solicitors LLP is delighted to announce that its seminar being held during Humber Business Week, which is intended to shed light on the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) upon businesses, has already reached capacity.

The firm's breakfast event, which will take place on Thursday 7 June, will focus on GDPR as a key area of concern among the region's businesses, as Nick Fraser, a member of the firm's corporate department explains: -

"Since GDPR became law on 25 May, we have continued to receive numerous enquiries from our clients and professional contacts who are seeking advice and clarification on its impact upon their businesses. GDPR is so much more than an IT issue: it has far reaching, major implications across the entire business, including commercial operations and HR procedures.

"With this in mind, our Business Week breakfast seminar will take a critical look at the new laws and consider the practical implications upon businesses, who simply can't afford to get it wrong at this early stage.

"Our presentation will provide a manageable breakdown of the key elements of GDPR including defining consent, the responsibility of data controllers and processors, and information security, so that delegates are equipped with the right information and can put that into practice within their own businesses."

Mark Pearson-Kendall, managing partner at Andrew Jackson, said: - "We are delighted and excited to continue to support Humber Business Week, which is always a hugely successful week of opportunity for the region, as reflected by the popularity of our seminar.  This year's calendar is stronger than ever and we are looking forward to taking part in this exciting and diverse programme."

Members of the Andrew Jackson team will be on hand at the breakfast seminar to speak to delegates and understand more about their particular queries.

Given the popularity of the firm's Business Week seminar, Andrew Jackson is to host another GDPR event in York on 28 June, which is also free to attend. Places are limited and may be reserved by emailing or contacting Sarah Liversedge on (01482) 601307.
