GDPR & eCommerce

Wednesday 25th April at 11:00AM Europe/London

With a month to go until the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force it’s crucial for all businesses to get their ducks in row in order to comply with the impending changes to data law. Any businesses taking online payments or handling consumer data need to be ready for GDPR adoption by the 25th of May 2018, when it officially comes into force. A study by OnePoll found that almost half of UK consumers plan to exercise their new rights over their data when GDPR comes into force. It questioned 2,000 UK consumers between May 24th and 26th 2017, and found that 48% planned to wield their new rights over personal data. A third (33%) said they would exercise the right to have their data removed by retailers, while 33% would ask retailers and brands to stop using their data for marketing purposes. Almost one in five (17%) said they would challenge automated decisions made by retailers and 24% said they would access the data that retail companies hold about them. The GDPR will be a huge change for all businesses, but eCommerce businesses in particular, as by nature, any company taking orders online will be receiving a vast amount of data on a wide number of people. This means eCommerce businesses will need to be ready to implement some fairly big changes in order to comply.

Data Security

Wednesday 4th April at 11:00AM Europe/London

Data is being increasingly recognised as an important corporate asset that needs to be safeguarded. Loss of information can have a detrimental effect on a business; from losing the trust of their customers, to big financial losses. And with the impending GDPR regulation coming into force in a matter of months managing your data has just become more critical than ever before. GDPR is placing even more obligation on organisations to ensure that personal data is used legally and transparently. It also fundamentally changes the relationship that individuals have with those organisations with whom they interact in terms of their personal data, and places more emphasis on the rights of data subjects. Sign up now to the data security webinar to discover: The detrimental effects of not keeping your data secure - How GDPR will impact data security - What to be aware of in the 2018 data security landscape - Put your data security questions to our experts.
