GDPR Masterclass for Event Organisers



GDPR in the events industry

The new law which will be enforceable in May 2018, cannot be ignored and the fines for non-compliance or data breaches could be more severe than previously. As an event organiser controlling and processing personal data, it impacts you.

Understand the legislation

You can find lots of general information online on this subject but navigating how this applies to the events industry is much more difficult.

Simon Clayton, CIO at event registration company Reference Technology and EventReference, has spoken at several industry events about the impact of GDPR on the industry. As the first badging and registration company to achieve ISO/IEC 27001:2013 data security certification, Simon has spent many years establishing his own expertise on data protection and security, and is now delivering his knowledge and insight on GDPR and its impact on the events industry through a series of breakfast Masterclasses.

Get GDPR-ready

The GDPR Masterclass will cover:

  • What GDPR means – the key principles
  • What happens if you don’t do anything
  • How it impacts you as an event organiser
  • Why you need to get your plan in place
  • Key areas to consider in building your plan and processes
  • Implicit consent and the rights of individuals
  • Data protection by design and by default
  • Useful resources and where to find help

The Masterclass is aimed at event organisers and professionals who use, collect, control or process any form of data in their business activities. This is a FREE to attend session to give you enough information to start you on your journey to GDPR compliance.

The Masterclass presentation and accompanying notes will be made available to all attendees on request.
