GDPR briefing with Peter Stevens from TWM Solicitors
Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce hosted a packed breakfast meeting this morning, featuring an invaluable briefing about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from leading expert Peter Stevens, partner at TWM Solicitors.
Peter explained this is a regulation, not a European directive, which shares similar principles to existing data protection laws. However, data protection law has fallen behind technological advances, with the GDPR making it fit for purpose in the modern age.
Chamber members attending the breakfast left with lots of action points, including carrying out a data protection audit, writing a data protection policy and updating privacy notices.
