GDPR for Start Ups

May 17 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


This FREE Outset workshop, fully funded by the ERDF, takes you through the essentials of the new GDPR regulations and how they apply to your small/start up business, including your responsibilities, your next steps and additional resources.

The General Data Protection Regulations came into force in May 2018, and bring in new legally-enforceable controls and documentation for how businesses collect, use, and store data.

The GDPR applies to most UK businesses and organisations, and is a mandatory part of the compliance regime. You need to be aware of your responsibilities and your new business needs to be compliant!

We will cover:

  • What is GDPR and who/what does it apply to?
  • What are the key responsibilities and roles
  • Data security under GDPR
  • Marketing under GDPR
  • Important documents and other articles
  • Your next steps, and further resources


If you are registered as a sole trader, please could you bring a letter from HMRC (with your UTR number on), if you have not provided this already.
