12th December – Understanding GDPR and the affects on small business with Robyn Banks from Adavista

Robyn Banks

Robyn Banks – despite the name is not in the profession of “robbing banks” – but she does run her own consultancy providing advice and guidance on UK data protection legislation.

There is new legislation coming into force in the UK on 25 May 2018 and all organisations – regardless of size or sector – are being advised to start preparing from now. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will “tighten” the existing provisions in the Data Protection Act 1998 and place new legal requirements on businesses (in terms of documentation) as well as new rights for individuals.

None of this means that any business should stop utilising personal data that it comes across in the day-to-day running of the business – you just need to do it in the appropriate way!

So if you would like to find out more about this impact and things to consider, then come along and listen to Robyn explain it all in a straightforward manner that you can relate to your business and life.

Robyn Banks has been running her own consultancy in the field of data protection since 1 January 2005. She ended a 19-year career in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office/HM Diplomatic Service with three years as the Data Protection Casework Officer and Trainer. In these three years, Robyn worked closely with the author of the Data Protection Act 1998 and is able to make the legislation work with the practicalities of running a business and day-to-day life/worries, which she has done since 2005 for many organisations of various sizes and in many different sectors.
