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.
GDPR enforcement is just around the corner and will have a dramatic effect on how organisations collect and process data, and how they dispose of end-of-life IT equipment. This seminar will cut through the jargon and share some practical ideas on how to be prepared.
Date: Thursday, February 22nd 2018
Time: 12:30 – 14:30

The press is awash with the GDPR feeding frenzy from experts peddling fear. Anyone who has actually read the legislation will know that, whilst there are several new key concepts, the GDPR is really just a sensible extension of existing data protection requirements but with a fundamental change to empower the data subject to have far more rights on their data then before.
So with just over six months to go before Ireland is required to have the GDPR enshrined into law, this article will look at one area which has seen quite a few changes, Data Processors, and will try to provide some sensible advice on how this can be one area where compliance need not cost the earth.
With Halloween just around the corner, there’s a chill in the air. Things go bump in the night, and people are nervous about what might be lurking in dark alleys or even under their bed. Things might be getting scarier as the evenings get darker, but do yourself a favour this year and forget about ghosts, goblins, zombies and vampires, and instead be afraid of the effect that a data breach could have on your organisation…
GDPR is set to come into force in less than eight months’ time, and will have a dramatic effect on how organisations collect and process data, and how they dispose of end-of-life IT equipment. Attendees will receive an overview of the legal requirements of GDPR and the obligations they need to fulfil in the next seven months.

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.
