Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


16th January – Bridgend
CMI Cymru – GDPR – Let’s Stop Talking ….



CMI Cymru in association with Bridgend College, ACCA Wales/Cymru and ICE Wales/Cymru are pleased to present our latest Leadership event presented by Andrew Brenton.

Please note the venue of this event as it is NOT the main College campus.  Drive along Kingsway and when you reach Jewson’s turn left onto Queen’s Road South.  The college building is on the right with car parking at rear of building if both car parks look full. Car sharing is a good idea!

This event starts at 9am with time for refreshments and an opportunity to network.

Our speaker will take to the floor at 0930 to 1100

In this packed 90 minute presentation, we’ll be covering:

GDPR – Let’s stop talking ……

It’s time to get real and start doing something towards GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) compliance.

General Data Protection Regulations – the update to the current data protection act  which affects any business which holds client data.

Andrew will take us through the key parts of the GDPR that we, as small businesses, need to be concerned about. He won’t be telling you all about the huge fines and how you will never do it all on a small budget. He won’t be selling you expensive software either. He will dispel some of the myths that you may have heard and put everything into an achievable light.  On this short waltz through the new data protection laws (that come into force on May 25th 2018) you’ll pick up tips and tricks, important information and some real practical advice that you can take away and implement in your business – the first steps toward being GDPR compliant.

You will learn about:

  • The legal basis for processing data •
  • When you need consent (which isn’t that often!) •
  • Keeping information safe •
  • All about the new rights that individuals will have •
  • What documents and records you need •
  • How to turn all this into a business benefit

About the Speaker:

Andrew has had a long career in project management and contingency planning for blue-chip companies including among others IBM, First National Bank, Dresdner Kleinwort and Elf Oil.   More recently he specialises in advising companies on the general and industry-specific governance requirements and how to implement compliance processes.
