A new data protection regulation will be explained at a business breakfast taking place at Buxted Park Hotel on Wednesday, March 28.Wealden logo best for widescreen 18-01

It is being organised by Wealden Council, and supported by the Federation of Small Businesses. Tickets are still available via this Eventbrite link and must be booked and paid for by noon on Tuesday, March 27.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a major new law which comes into force on May 25, setting new rules for the way businesses and organisations store and use personal data.

Opportunities

Heavy fines await those who get it wrong…. but a message to be shared at the business breakfast is that the changes can also provide opportunities for growth.

David Jamieson, of The Jamieson Consultancy, will be speaking to dispel some of the myths surrounding GDPR, and providing a tool-kit to help businesses make the most of what it could offer. He will then take a question and answer session.

Mr Jamieson’s insights are backed by 20 years of experience working with manufacturing and consumer electronics companies, the service, retail and hospitality sectors as well as a number of market-leading publishers.

Circulation lists

The Jamieson Consultancy also manages fully-audited circulation lists in the UK and abroad.

Cllr Roy Galley, cabinet member for economic development at Wealden Council, said: “The General Data Protection Regulation will mean a major change in the way businesses store data about their customers and staff and use circulation lists.

“I would urge any Wealden business, which is not entirely sure what GDPR means for them, to make sure they send a representative to our Business Breakfast.”

Networking

The event takes place at Buxted Park Hotel starting at 7.15am, with a cooked breakfast served at 7.30am, and the main presentation beginning at 7.50am. There will be time for networking afterwards.

The event costs £11 per person which includes a booking fee.
