January 3, 2018 4:36 pm Paul Mullin

The team at MetaCompliance are having an executive briefing on GDPR in key European cities including London, Dublin, Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Berlin and Geneva. Below we look at 5 reasons why you should join us when our GDPR roadshow comes to town.

1. Free GDPR for Dummies Book

We’ve released the official and definitive GDPR for Dummies guide, in collaboration with Wiley – the brand best known for their Dummies series. It comes with GDPR compliance expertise derived from helping clients across multiple industries to protect their data, educate staff and manage their reputational and regulatory risk. This book will break down even the most complex elements of GDPR into easily understood terms.

2. MetaPrivacy Free Trial

MetaPrivacy is a privacy lifecycle management system that delivers an automated best practice approach to data privacy compliance. The platform is made up of several important components which come together to form a complete compliance solution to article 30 of the GDPR. In addition, MetaPrivacy includes role-specific GDPR online learning modules, advanced policy management capabilities, step-by-step guidance for managing privacy incidents and a collection of informative dashboards and reports that allow you to monitor privacy compliance programs and demonstrate accountability as required. This combined approach provides you with an all in one solution to adhering to article 30 of the GDPR.

3. GDPR Experts

We will have the co-author of the GDPR for Dummies book, Shane Fuller in attendance at all events to answer your GDPR queries. Shane has over 25 years of IT, Information Security, GRC & Privacy Management experience. Shane is the co-author of ‘GDPR for Dummies’ and advises organisations and vendors regarding all things privacy & GDPR. Shane holds FIP, CIPP/E, CIPM, CISSP, CISA and CRISC certifications. We will also have our MetaCompliance GDPR team, who are trained and certified GDPR practitioners.

4. Networking

20 per cent of EU businesses admit they haven’t started preparing for GDPR yet. More than half (52 per cent) of EU businesses don’t know what the impact of GDPR on their organisation will be. This goes to show that lots of businesses are in the same predicament. You’ll be able to network with likeminded individuals facing the same GDPR issues. Alongside our GDPR expertise, it could be just the spark you need to get your GDPR plan right. 

5. Practical GDPR Advice

You may be looking to kickstart your privacy project or looking for ways to ramp up your existing programs, whatever the reasons, these breakfast briefings are designed to provide you with practical advice and guidance for your GDPR project. After the breakfast briefing, you’ll be able to create a data management process for your organisation and learn how data protection, cyber security and incident management coalesce for your GDPR project. 

We are now in 2018 and the arrival of GDPR is just a few short months away. For many organisations there is still lots of work to be done, so don’t hit snooze on your GDPR project any longer.
