New radio show: GDPR without Giving Dodgy Pros Riches

Image re Business Live 300318Time for your weekly dose of business and social enterprise radio magic (the word “magic” used with tongue firmly in cheek) – Good Friday’s Business Live radio show. Here’s the podcast.

What treats does it hold? Updates about business confidence in Yorkshire, funding for community businesses, and an excellent social enterprise scale up programme, The Scale Up UK Programme, delivered by Barclays and The Big Issue, in partnership with Cambridge Judge Business School.

And the main event is an in-depth interview about the forthcoming data regulations you’ll have heard about (I hope!) – GDPR.

Dr. Heather Anson generously gave an hour of her time to run through what you need to know (and what you need to do) when it comes to GDPR. Heather has extensive long-standing expertise in data protection and regulatory compliance.

The regulations come into effect in May, which is careering towards us like a 10 tonne truck bearing down on a cute and terrified bunny.

As Heather points out, there’s a lot of scaremongering going on, and there are plenty of folk wanting to part you from your money who don’t necessarily have your best interests at heart.

I’m not trying to scare you (and I’m not selling GDPR compliance services) but you don’t want to be the bunny squished by the GDPR juggernaut. Heather’s advice will help.

Here’s the podcast:
