The Five things you need to do NOW if you want to be GDPR compliant by 25th May 2018


Data Protection is not a new concept, but the EU’s decision to adopt legislation that applies equally across all 31 countries of the EU and EEA brings with it a whole new set of challenges.

Driven as they are by data, publishing companies will find that the GDPR permeates every aspect of their business, and must be addressed.

If you haven’t started yet – this webinar will give you the most important actions you need to take right now to begin your route to compliance.

What can you expect to learn?

• What data do you have – the importance of knowing what you collect and how you use it

• Where do you keep your data and who is looking after it – security is paramount in the new legislation; what steps are you expected to take?

• How long do you keep your data for – building data lifecycle management into your business processes

• What permission do you have to use the data you hold – what permissions are you going to need in the future?

• Who is responsible and who should be in charge of your data protection policies.

Who should attend: Senior leaders in publishing, senior staff from Sales & Marketing, Circulation, Strategy and HR.

This webinar was broadcast on 2.30-3pm (BST), Tuesday 19 September 2017
