Changes to data protection rules

Overview

Even with the uncertainty of ‘Brexit’, the new rules around data protection will be enforced as of May 2018. The ICO announced in early October that business would be expected to be compliant with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by then, not just starting out.

To help retailers understand their new obligations, including changes to gaining consent for marketing activity, fines and data portability, IMRG will be hosting a workshop on the 7th February 2017. Experts from Bond Dickinson will be providing insight and you will have the opportunity to discuss the challenges with your peers. You will leave the workshop with actionable insight that you can take back to your business.

GDPR impacts many different areas of retailing and some of the changes will impact how you interact and sell to customers. Others represent a major change in managing risk and exposure should a business suffer from a data breach.
