The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are being implemented on 25th May 2018. If you're not prepared, you could face a £17 million fine or 4% of global revenues - whichever is greater.

If you handle personal data of an EU citizen, then you must be fully GDPR compliant by 25 May 2018. Based on the scope of the regulations, it is hard to imagine any UK organisation that will not need to comply.

GDPR covers all business contact data including customers, prospects, suppliers and staff. Examples of possible sources are databases, CCTV footage, HR records, email content, bank details and photographs.

It seems that many organisations are far from ready, and some are not sure where to begin. A good place to start is to visit the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office website, where there is plenty of useful information on GDPR. You might want to start by reading their 12 steps guide, which we have uploaded on our website.

Microsoft and Doherty Associates are presenting on Friday 1st December on the topic of cyber risk and how you can mitigate against these in the context of GDPR.

Breakfast will be served from 08:30 with the presentation beginning at 09:00. The presentation usually finishes around 10:30 with further refreshments and a chance to ask both Microsoft and Doherty experts any more questions that you may need answering. 

Why should you attend?

Register today to hear from Doherty Associates' CEO Terry Doherty and Microsoft's legal expert Mike Gill as well as GDPR certified experts from both organisations. 

  • The biggest cyber-security threats to the legal sector and how not being GDPR compliant leaves you exposed not only to the threats but also to financial and reputational damage 
  • The 'low bar' for GDPR readiness, with Office 365 Enterprise licencing as a starting point
  • Why the biggest threats to your GDPR readiness may be things you don't even know about
  • Options for securing and protecting data for mobile workers within GDPR
  • Ideas for safely accommodating new trends like 'Bring Your Own Device' without potentially falling foul of the GDPR


There will be an emphasis on practical takeaways and advice to guide delegates in how to use technology to be as prepared as possible for the GDPR regulations being enforced from 2018.
