    Law firm Andrew Jackson Solicitors LLP announces that it will host a seminar in York later this month, which is intended to shed light on the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) upon businesses in the weeks following its introduction.

    The firm’s breakfast event, to be held on Thursday 28 June, will focus on GDPR as a key area of concern among the region’s businesses, as Nick Fraser, a member of the firm’s corporate department explains: –

    “Since GDPR became law on 25 May, we have continued to receive many enquiries from clients and professional contacts alike, who are seeking advice and clarification on its impact upon their businesses, and what action they need to take. GDPR is so much more than an IT issue: it has far reaching, major implications across the entire business, including commercial operations and HR procedures.

    “With this in mind, our York seminar will take a critical look at the new laws and consider the practical implications upon businesses, who simply can’t afford to get it wrong at this early stage.

    “Our presentation will provide a manageable breakdown of the key elements of GDPR including defining consent, the responsibility of data controllers and processors, and information security, so that delegates are equipped with the right information and can put that into practice within their own businesses.”

    Members of the Andrew Jackson team will be on hand at the event to speak to delegates about any GDPR-related concerns, in order to understand more about their particular requirements.

    The seminar will take place at the Merchant Taylors’ Hall in York. Whilst free to attend, places are limited and may be reserved by emailing events@andrewjackson.co.uk or contacting Sarah Liversedge on 01904 275 260.
