Getting to Grips with GDPR

Getting to Grips with GDPR



Network Ireland Limerick is a forum for women in business, the professions and the arts. Our GDPR training day is open to both members and non-members.

In recent years with data breaches occurring on an almost weekly basis across the world, the EU has gotten serious about Data Protection. In April 2016, the EU adopted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and gave the members of the EU until May 25th 2018 to prepare for enforcement.

The objective of our GDPR training day is to provide participants with an awareness of the changes in the Data Protection legislation and to create awareness as to what effect these changes will have on the participant’s business along with some practical knowledge as to how to comply with the legislation.

You will be informed on:   

- Key changes in Data Protection Legislation and how they will impact your business or organisation

- Individuals’ rights and your business’s obligations under the regulation

- Liabilities & penalties under the GDPR

- Obtaining consent and knowing your legal basis for processing personal data

- The first steps every business should take to be GDPR ready and how to effectively conduct a data audit for your business

- Raising staff awareness

Ultimately, this training will give businesses and organisations the guidance and practical steps they need to prepare for the GDPR.

Lunch and refreshments will be served on the day.



About the Trainer – Liam Lynch

When it comes to helping people get to grips with GDPR, Liam Lynch strives to adopt a straightforward, common sense approach. He aims to eliminate the scaremongering and instead empower people with the tools and guidance they need to be GDPR ready.

Liam is a Cyber Security and Data Protection Specialist with over 28 years of experience working in IT. He started out as a developer in the late 80’s but always had an interest in the technology that he used every day so moved into IT Management. He also had an inherent ability to create secure environments, both physical and digital. He has worked with a number of companies over the years, from small operations to large corporations. He has found that, in spite of massive expenditure on technological security solutions, these can all be thwarted by “Fred” in accounting opening an “invoice” (i.e. evil software) in an e-mail which has sneaked past all of the filters, firewalls and anti-viruses. He thought there has to be a better way. He knows what the threats are out there and how to spot them and protect enterprises from them, and has developed the most comprehensive Internet Safety Training on the market. He has an ability to relate this knowledge to people of any ability and get them to learn how they can protect themselves, the businesses they work for and their families. Liam’s own company is L2 Cyber Security Solutions.
