GDPR: Understanding your obligations and the ongoing challenges

The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018, and data protection law has changed as a result. GDPR has impacted on all areas of operation: individual consent; the right to be forgotten; data breach reporting; subject access requests; internal IT systems; negotiating contracts with third-parties…we could go on!


We run regular ‘mini memcom’ events throughout the year and sector leaders Adapta Consulting joined us on 5th March to run a session all about GDPR, providing delegates with an overview of the challenges the membership sector has faced since the inception of GDPR.


This was followed by a ‘surgery’ session, addressing specific problems and questions raised by the audience. Our delegates came armed with the GDPR problems that have been challenging their organisation and left with fresh ideas on how to address these key issues.


The session was led by David Membrey, Senior Consultant and Paul Sypko, Partner.


If you missed the session, here are the presentation slides which David and Paul kindly shared with us.
