GDPR Phase 2: From Box-ticking to Accountability

What are you going to learn

  • We’ve all read and heard a lot about “accountability” in the past few years but what does it really mean and have organisations done enough? Many organisations appear to believe they are now “GDPR compliant”. The Information Commissioner clearly disagrees, so this webinar will seek to explain this huge disconnect. Then we will look at what we – DPOs and Privacy advisers – can do to help fix it.
