2018 GDPR Events List: Understanding GDPR’s Impact on HR



Learn how GDPR will affect HR with these UK-wide professional events.

In a recent CIPD survey of more than 500 HR professionals, 48% said that GDPR was their main concern for 2018. That’s no surprise – flouting the new law carries extraordinary penalties.

While previous penalties were capped at £500,000, businesses now face a maximum fine of €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is highest.

Fortunately, there are plenty of events over the coming months to help you understand GDPR and its impact on HR.
