Fire Safety in Business
Not knowing the rules is no excuse; business owners, managers etc. can be fined or even receive a prison sentence.
Andy Priest of Wiveliscombe Fire Station will be giving an informed talk on this important subject.
New Data Protection Regulations
Don’t shut your eyes to GDPR – the fines are horrendous!
The General Data Protection Regulations are coming in on 25 May 2018 – and it is certain to relate to almost every business in the Ten Parishes.
The regulations will affect any business holding personal data on customers, prospects or employees based within the EU and businesses need to be preparing for the change now. If businesses ignore this law they can be fined up to €20m or 4% of global annual turnover.
The rules are complex, but don’t be overwhelmed – simply build the rules into your organisation culture.
Make sure you know what you have and why you have it, where it sits, who has access to it, it’s up to date, records exists by consent and who has overall responsibility.
Encrypt anything that if it were your own personal information, you would not want disclosed.
Porter Dodson Solicitors will be explaining how to protect your business.
Make new contacts and gain support from other local businesses on local issues.
