A bi-weekly series of workshops dedicated to getting your company GDPR compliant and how to use it as a competitive advantage.
Mäkitalo Rantanen & Co Oy will be partnering with SimpleTec Solutions, Maria01 and The Shortcut to deliver a bi-weekly series of workshops open to all companies who are looking for professional guidance on getting their GDPR sorted.
In our first session, we will talk about what GDPR is, what it means for your company and how to get started.
Over the course of this series, we plan to do a deep dive in particular areas like consent management, Controller vs. Processor responsibilities and Data Subject request, among others.
You’ll get the chance to impact our future discussions as we’ll be choosing the topic of subsequent sessions based on audience demand and interest.
Make a smart move for your company and join us for our opening workshop on 19th February complete with pizza and beer!

Why should your company aim for full GDPR compliance?
· GDPR is effective 25 May 2018 and impacts businesses of all sizes that process, store and transfer personal data.
· It’s estimated that as little as 1/3 of companies have started their compliancy programs. Companies starting now can still use this as a competitive advantage if you promote your start and plan!
· GDPR for small/medium sized companies as well as Startups have the advantage of lower complexity over larger companies that will need to spend serval times more to gain compliancy. Due to size and complexity of large companies it will take them longer. So be 1st in your domain to be compliant!
· Currently customers are looking for companies that will be compliant because after the effective date they are required to use compliant partners, so avoid business disruption by being able to prove your compliancy.
· Non-compliance can result in fines of up to €20m or penalties of up to 4% of turnover, which is ever higher.
· GDPR is multifaceted and you need to remediate all areas to become compliant.
