Recorded Webinar, Originally Held 10:30AM BST, 1 July 2020

Lockdown is bringing challenges for businesses with criminals taking advantage of the current situation and organisations are having to rapidly adapt to new ways of working. Attend for free advice!

In this webinar we will be examining how lockdown has impacted upon data protection & GDPR (which has just passed it’s second birthday). We will also look at the immediate and future impact for making credit risk assessments against other businesses so that you can work with confidence.

The aim of this series of Webinars is to inform and educate organisations not only during the current lockdown but also looking ahead to “the new normal”.
