Some description

Isle of Man businesses are invited to attend a CIM event on 20 June looking at the hot topic of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) which comes into force on 25 May.

Diane Earles, Network Manager at CIM, "The new GDPR rules will fundamentally change the way we market to customers, how we collect and hold data and how we communicate both internally and externally.  As a result all businesses need to know about it and work with it effectively." 

This event will welcome Steve Kuncewiecz from BLM, and Iain McDonald, Isle of Man Information Commissioner, and they will look at what Isle of Man businesses need to do to stay on the right side of the law - and how they can provide a better customer service as a result.

Steve specialises in intellectual property, media, social media and communications law, and works mainly in the media, digital, creative, film, television, publishing, marketing, advertising and PR sectors.  He is a regular media spokesperson, including interviews on BBC Breakfast, Sky News, ITV, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 5 Live. His first book, "Legal Issues of Web 2.0 and Social Media", was published in June 2010, and his second "Legal Issues of Corporate Communication in the Online World" in July 2011.

The event, titled 'GDPR Update', will be held at the Best Western Palace Hotel, starting at 12 noon, and is open to CIM members and non-members.
