GDPR and information governance

13 March | Manchester

GDPR is a significant piece of legislation regarding data protection and has been one of the hot topics over the last 24 months, demanding corporate focus in most organisations.

IIA North West held a GDPR event back in May 2018 when the changes came in to force that looked at what to expect. This event will focus on what happens next and common issues and difficulties that are occurring. Its speakers hail from both Central Government and Private Sector.
