Standish accountancy firm hosts GDPR seminar for local businesses

Local accountants McGinty Demack has today hosted a GDPR focused seminar at Kilhey Court House, Standish.

The seminar, which featured speakers from Attain Digital and Taylors Solicitors, educated guests on how GDPR could impact their business and their employees.

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes into effect on 25 May 2018 and as part of the GDPR legislation, large companies will be required to appoint a Data Protection Officer and everyone could be potentially subject to hefty penalties and fines, if they do not comply with the new rules and regulations.

Karen Richardson, MD, McGinty Demack said: “The seminar was a great success, attendees complimented the quality of speakers and the valuable information they could take away from the event.

“We held this seminar because we feel it is important to educate local businesses on becoming GDPR ready, before it is implemented in May next year. GDPR could have a big impact on how businesses across the Wigan area operate and it is vital they are up to date on what they must do to be compliant.”
