The May 25th GDPR deadline is fast approaching and is set to shake up how organisations collect and process data. To help businesses with their final preparations, AMI recently held a special GDPR lunchtime seminar in the Merchant Hotel, Belfast which was attended by more than 130 people. We’ve put together a recap of what was an informative, insightful and truly engaging event.

We recently revealed the results of our 2017 security survey, which was carried out in association with TechPro magazine. 137 senior IT decision makers across a range of industries took part in the survey, and the results present an interesting snapshot of companies’ approach to the disposal of their old IT assets.
AMI recently conducted a survey of 137 senior IT decision-makers throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland, with the aim of gaining an insight into organisations’ approach to disposing of end-of-life IT assets. The results highlight a number of interesting findings, including the fact that a significant number of Irish companies are leaving themselves open to huge GDPR fines.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to come into force in just over a year’s time, on 25th May 2018. GDPR is one of the most important pieces of legislation to affect companies whose core business involves processing data.
Those found to be non-compliant could face fines of up to €20 million or 4% of global turnover, depending on which is greater. With such significant penalties, it’s no surprise that organisations are already working to meet the requirements outlined in the regulation.
