Webinar: UK Energy Sector Data Protection Concerns

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) continues to have an impact on data protection and privacy requirements for all businesses. On the 2nd of November 2018, our Data Privacy experts, Rob de Souza and Paul Gillingwater hosted a webinar to discuss the issues and concerns facing the UK Energy sector.

A lot of people are still trying to understand what GDPR means for their business and are asking how they can continue to maximise growth whilst incorporating these new requirements alongside existing legislation.

We aim to help businesses gain confidence and understanding regarding their planned GDPR processes and challenges. If you were unable to attend this event, then hopefully you will find the replay of the webinar and associated slides below informative.
