Leman have joined a host of excellent organisations as part of the GDPR Awareness Coalition. One of the coalition's main goals really resonates which us and that's to simplify GDPR for those organisations that are impacted.
The GDPR Awareness Coalition is a not-for-profit, fixed-term initiative, established in February 2017, to assist in raising awareness of the data privacy obligations for companies big or small, from the global multinational to single employee traders, as a result of implementation of GDPR on the near horizon.
With roots going back in February to an initial call for collaborators by Garry Connolly, President and Founder of Host in Ireland, the Coalition is currently growing in numbers on a daily basis and involves companies that include GDPR experts, vendors, legal, fiscal, event and general collaborators.
So watch this space for news and events organised by the coalition in raising GDPR awareness. The mantra is simple - you need to be aware to prepare!
You can also follow the hashtag #SimplyGDPR to keep up to date.
We look forward to working with so many amazing contributors in raising Irish awareness on GDPR.
