Amanda Milling, Member of Parliament for Cannock Chase is urging local businesses to sign up for the Business Breakfast that she is hosting with Cannock-based technology business Spartan Global Services and the Chase Chamber of Commerce where the upcoming changes to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be discussed.
So far over 90 businesses have signed up to the event where they will be briefed on the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which come into force in May 2018. The aim of the event is to ensure businesses understand the additional requirements and processes which will need to be met in order to be compliant.
Amanda Milling MP said: “I am very pleased that local businesses are signing up to the event to ensure they are fully prepared for the new data protection regulations. I cannot stress how big these changes are and how businesses need to ensure they are ready. I would urge any businesses that haven’t already done to sign up for the briefing.”
Chris Pattihis of Spartan Global Services said: “The requirements that local businesses will need to comply with are extensive and are a high logistical challenge for any business. They also affect any type of business from manufacturers and service sector businesses, through to landlords and leisure businesses. If you hold personal data including names and addresses, or are part of a wider supply chain, you need to ensure that you are fully data compliant.”
The free breakfast briefing takes place at 8.00am on Friday 2nd March 2018 at The Premier Suite, Danilo Road, Cannock WS11 1BJ. To register - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/spartan-global-services-ltd-amanda-milling-mp-and-chase-chamber-of-commerce-16557194700.
