Energize and JMW to Host GDPR Seminar

By 25th May 2018, all businesses must comply with the new General Data Protection Regulations – regardless of Brexit. You’ve read the headlines surrounding data breaches, but what are the legal requirements?

“Breaches of some provisions by businesses could lead to fines of up to €20 million or 4% of global annual turnover for the preceding financial year, whichever is the greater, being levied by data watchdogs.”

In an effort to support our business partners with the implications of this legislation, Energize Recruitment Solutions, in partnership with JMW Solicitors, has gathered several of the UK’s leading experts on data breach law for an interactive workshop-style seminar.

At the seminar, delegates will hear from leading experts within the data protection industry with insights on both the prospective ramifications of GDPR and data breach law. Attendees will have the opportunity to share experiences and debate, and we hope, will leave the seminar more confident with what GDPR means for business and organisations ahead of 2018.

Our panel of expert guest speakers includes:
