News: GDPR Implications

Posted on 11th April 2018

I seem to have spent a lot of time talking about GDPR this week, and I know that some of you have spent even more time on it. It’s coincidental that Mark Zuckerberg has been giving evidence to Congress about Facebook data leaks, and how to avoid them in future, as we prepare for this change in the law designed to make the law much tighter here and in Europe when it comes to handling data from outside sources.

As Yann Davies at Abcom explained to me this week, it will impact upon everyone who handles data, and it has wider implications which as yet most of us have not even considered.

In response to a request, please email me if you would attend a question and answer session specifically on GDPR if it was scheduled locally in the next month?  If there is sufficient interest then it may be possible to set up a session.

If you have issues with GDPR which are concerning you, these are the names of people who come highly recommended by BHBPA members. Do contact them if you feel the need.

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
