Our next free webinar for LDE members is being presented by Helen Cookson. This is an hour-long introduction to GDPR with a particular focus on understanding the key requirements and demystifying the core principles of data protection. Helen will look at the steps which organisations are expected to be taking to prepare for the implementation of the GDPR in May 2018 and help you understand some of the common pitfalls so that you can focus your action plan to most effect.
