Almost all organisations use or process personal data. With less than 9 months to go before the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) comes into force in the UK and across Europe, the run up to 25 May 2018 is set to be a busy period for organisations like yours preparing for compliance.

Herbert Smith Freehills launches multi-disciplinary GDPR series

A successful GDPR implementation programme is not simply a static strategy in the domain of a legal or compliance team – it is an evolving exercise and requires engagement from a range of other business functions across an organisation such as IT, cyber security, HR and procurement, to name but a few.

Herbert Smith Freehills’ specialist multi-disciplinary Data Protection, Privacy and Cyber Security teams are here to help you successfully navigate the GDPR in the run up to 25 May 2018 and beyond, with our series of cross-practice cross-border briefings and webinars catering for the “whole of business”. Each briefing and webinar will be written with a particular key business function or functions in mind – placing the spotlight on what we are seeing and hearing in the market alongside our practical experience of dealing with the challenges of compliance.

In our first briefing in the series we take a high level look at the anatomy of a GDPR compliance programme, breaking down the task into more digestible pieces.

Subsequent briefings and webinars in the series will take a deeper dive into some of the key considerations in any compliance programme and the use of data more widely. In particular this will include a focus on employment, cyber security and supply chain related issues.
