GDPR – We’re ready…Are you?

Posted on 9th May, 2018

AssetCare, our IT data destruction division, recently hosted it’s first seminar on the impact of the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

gdprThe seminar brought clarity as to how we can all stay on the right side of the law and reduce risk whilst being pragmatic as to the implementation and ongoing requirements of compliance. Delegates were also given a tour of our AssetCare facility.

The event was very well received from those who attended. Steve Fink, National Site Auditor for Go Green Ltd commented:  “A big thankyou to you and all the team at Assetcare for an excellent GDPR Seminar held last week. It was very informative and thoroughly enjoyable and coupled with the tour of your facility and a great buffet lunch, it made for a refreshing change and a very welcome insight into the complex world of WEEE recycling and certified data destruction.”

Our next seminar is being held on 15th May at our Normanton facility from 9am – 1.30pm.  Please contact julia.jones@wastecare.co.uk to book your place.  Today parliament is discussing the finer aspects of the new legislation.  The new regulations are in force from 25th May 2018.
