17 January 2018 – MetaCompliance, the leading global provider of staff awareness, policy governance and risk management, in the areas of privacy, cybersecurity and compliance, has launched a GDPR for Dummies Roadshow aimed at educating Edinburgh businesses on how to take a practical, business orientated approach to GDPR compliance. The free-to-attend breakfast briefing will take place from 8am-9.30am on 24 January at the Hilton Carlton in Edinburgh.

The 2018 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) deadline is fast approaching and confusion is still rife around how to comply with the new regulations. The MetaCompliance executive breakfast briefings therefore offer guidance to decision makers and CIOs – from businesses impacted by GDPR – on key topics such as:

– GDPR: What will it mean for you?
– How to prepare for GDPR compliance
– Specific GDPR obligations regarding customer and employee data
– How to develop a privacy management programme
– The importance of privacy by design
– The role of technology in GDPR compliance

Attendees will hear from Shane Fuller, compliance industry expert and Co-Author of the official ‘GDPR for Dummies’ guide. He will be joined by other subject matter experts including MetaCompliance’s CEO, Robert O’Brien and Heyrick Bond Gunning, CEO at global business intelligence, risk management and cyber security firm, S-RM.

“For many businesses across Europe, GDPR is taking them into uncertain and unchartered territory, which can be a daunting prospect,” comments Robert O’Brien. “With so much conflicting advice out there regarding the GDPR requirements, through our roadshow, we hope to lay the foundations that will enable businesses of all sizes, from all sectors, to have a clearer idea on what they need to do to be GDPR compliant.

“We’re delighted to have Mr Fuller on board,” he continues. “As a GDPR specialist with 10 years’ experience in data privacy, he will be on hand to offer sound advice to delegates and answer any business-related GDPR questions, irrespective of the stage a company is at in its GDPR journey.”
