Event Summary

Data breaches are all too common and present a very serious threat to all types of businesses, public sector organisations and charities. Failure to handle a breach well could result in long term damage to your brand’s reputation and perhaps lead to a fine or other enforcement action.

Attend this one-day workshop ‘Preventing and Responding to a Data Breach’ and learn how to identify and respond to a data breach robustly and effectively.
