Is your business GDPR ready?

The SFA Business Bytes events, which are entirely free of charge, offer small businesses access to expert information and advice and an opportunity to network with their peers. The series is supported by Bord Gáis Energy.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force on 25 May 2018, is one of the most significant pieces of legislation for businesses in many years. Making sure that your business is ready for GDPR requires advance preparation, no matter how small the company is.

Taking action now is essential to becoming and remaining compliant, safeguarding your business from the massive fines that can be imposed under GDPR (up to €20 million or 4% of the company’s turnover, whichever is greater). Good data protection practices can also be a competitive advantage in an era where privacy and security are highly valued by customers, employees and clients.  

This seminar will help you to understand the main principles of the GDPR and outline the steps that you should be taking to get your house in order. 

The seminar will be delivered by Seán O'Donnell and Brendan Gavin, Partner and Senior Associate respectively with Byrne Wallace. 

A member of the SFA team will also update members on the GDPR resources that are currently available on the SFA website, the support accessible from our in-house experts and the tools which will be rolled out in the lead up to 25 May.   

The event is open to SFA members and non-members. It will last for approximately one hour with an opportunity to network before and after. Refreshments will be provided.

This event is entirely free of charge but you must pre-register.
