With less than 100 days till the regulation comes into force and fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover, there has never been a more important time to ensure your organisation is ready for the new data protection regime.

The CBI’s full-day workshops are specifically tailored to provide delegates with a highly valuable set of practical tools to share with colleagues and ensure your business is ready for GDPR.

Join other business to discuss how they are approaching their implementation journeys and share best practice in breakout sessions throughout the day. 

I liked the interactive elements in the sessions and it was really useful to gain other people's perspectives and insight into the exercises and the sessions.
