Are you still feeling confused and overwhelmed by GDPR and the implications the new regulations may have for your business? Following on from the success of our GDPR conference last month, we are inviting businesses to attend a full day of GDPR training so that you can gain in-depth, focused and tailored guidance on the regulations.

We will be offering a full day of thorough training delivered by two of the experts who gave a taster of their extensive specialist knowledge of GDPR at the conference: Alex Saunders, Leathes Prior and Darren Chapman, Cyberscale. 

The day will consist of a morning covering the legal and policy aspect of the new regulations delivered by Alex, followed by an afternoon which will focus on how to ensure your cyber security strategy meets GDPR requirements. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

With limited spaces, make sure you book on to this training session taking place at the Chamber offices and allow us to guide your organisation's preperation for 25th May onwards.
