Taylor Made Computer Solutions and KPMG are working together to educate fellow local businesses on the new GDPR data protection rules, which come into effect this May.
From May 25th businesses will have to prove they’ve been given consent to store people’s data. They’ll also have to tell people how their data is stored and how it’s being protected. If personal data gets stolen after a cyber-attack, companies have to report the breach within 72 hours of realising it.
There are big fines in store for businesses who fail to comply with the new laws, with non-compliance fines potentially costing upwards of £20m or four per cent of total annual worldwide revenue.
To help businesses get to grips with the new rules Taylor Made and KPMG are running a free seminar next month. The event, at KPMG’s Chandler’s Ford office on March 20, will feature easy-to-understand advice from Taylor Made’s Matthew Faulkner and KPMG’s La Vern Martin.
Matthew said: “This is the biggest change to UK data laws in years. While a lot of businesses have known about GDPR for some time, some of the advice out there has been confusing and now the clock is ticking. This event is all about setting out exactly what businesses need to do in clear, easy-to-implement steps and dispelling some of the myths that are out there.”
La Vern Martin added: “We’re looking forward to welcoming fellow members of the Hampshire business community and helping them get to grips with GDPR.”
