Over 4 years on from the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and with increasing regulatory focus on data protection and e-privacy compliance, now is an opportune time to undertake an audit of your data estate.

Undertaking an audit can arise for a number of reasons, be that to better understand the information your organisation holds, to refresh and roll out new policies, or to meet the demands of increasingly demanding legislation in the most effective way possible.

Presented by expert speaker Robert Bond, this practical, interactive seminar will offer guidance on how to successfully undertake a desk-based audit.
