GDPR - sorting the fact from the fiction

Posted by Joel on Monday 11th September 2017

There's a lot of fake news surrounding the forthcoming introduction of GDPR.
Our next breakfast briefing at nTrust House on 20 September 2017 aims to clarify the practical steps that organisations can take now in order to prepare.


We have recently spotted a series of blogs from the Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, who is keen to dispel some of the myths.

It is refreshing to find blogs on this subject that are so well-written and easy to read. Not only do the Information Commissioner's blogs debunk the scaremongering, but they also give straightforward answers to the questions that many people are asking.
Topics covered by her three blogs so far include

  • The new fines, the rationale behind them and some reassuring perspective
  • Consent - when you do and don't need to ask for consent
  • Data breaches and reporting - what constitutes a data breach along with reporting responsibilities and timings


We have already covered many of the action points in our Guide to GDPR, created to help our customers prepare for the new legislation.

You do need to think now about the risks that your organization faces and prepare accordingly. If you would like to attend our Breakfast Briefing on this subject, please use our Online Form to reserve a place.
