SETsquared workshop: Getting data protection right

Speaker: Jessica Vautier, Senior Associate at Bortstein Legal Group


What happens when your business is built on handling personal data?

Maybe you’ve created the next best app that helps people track their health, or maybe you specialise in marketing to targeted audiences, or you’re handling sensitive data from your employees...

You need people’s data, and you need to deal with it properly.

From data breaches and reputational damage shattering consumer trust to hefty fines hitting you where it hurts, mismanagement of personal data can result in a host of problems that can be hard to control once they've come to the surface.

Having the right information and options available to individuals gives your customers confidence that they are being looked after. Good internal data management will also help if you suffer a data breach or receive a complaint or a request from an individual.

Data protection compliance is a key concern for many potential investors and acquirers, making it hard for your business to grow (and, later, for you to exit) if you haven't done the legal legwork.

Join Bortstein Legal Group’s privacy expert Jessica Vautier for a jargon-busting session on your obligations around personal data, together with practical advice on what your business needs to put in place to comply with the law.
