Firstly, it put me into the huge number of people in the UK who claim to be a GDPR expert, and spam me about it with no sense of irony.
Secondly, the legislation is incredibly broad, touching on almost every aspect of a business. Unlike most regulations, this isn’t just about advice. You’ll need to get hold of what’s happening in your IT, HR and payroll systems, and they might be areas you outsource or haven’t looked at for years.
Third, the rules and guidance were pretty well written. Coming off the back of MiFID II, Ulysses reads like an airline safety pamphlet. Most (not all, we consultants have to earn a living somehow) of the guidance was pretty simple and the ICO website is very good.
The guide will be released in the next few days, and adviser who subscribe to Nucleus’ Illuminate website will be notified of free workshops I’ll be running on GDPR on the 13, 14 and 15 March in London, Leeds and Edinburgh respectively.
In the meantime, if you live in Manchester, or can’t make the Nucleus dates I’ll be running the seminar on my own on the morning of 8th March. The cost is £125 plus VAT and included is a ticket to an event on employment law I’m hosting in the afternoon, free of charge. For more details read here.
