Organisations are scrambling to comply with the new data protection legislation, but what impact will it have on small and medium-sized businesses? With the prospect of hefty fines and mandatory breach notifications looming, SMEs need to think carefully about their cyber defence strategy under the GDPR act, or risk being incredibly vulnerable should a cyber incident occur. A potential fine is enough to take a small business entirely offline. So, is your business prepared? Join us in the third LIVE webinar of our GDPR series, to discover: - The impact of the new regulation for SMEs - The steps all SMEs must take now in order to be compliant by May 2018 - The detrimental impact of being non-compliant

The vast majority of data breaches are due to human error, as a result of employees simply doing something they should not be doing. Whilst staff training has always been an important element of Data Protection compliance, the forthcoming introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation coming into play in May 2018, will make staff training even more important given fines under GDPR for non-compliance can be up to €20m or 4% of global turnover. The associated reputational damage arising from a data breach can be fatal to any businesses and can be as a result of just one employee. Join us in the fourth LIVE webinar of our GDPR series, to discover: - The impact of not training your employees for the new Regulation - When you must start your staff training - The relevant face-to-face training tips
