    Presentation title: Data protection in reality – do understand where the risks lie and don’t over-engineer your compliance.

    While much coverage is given to the promotion of the importance of taking action regarding data protection and the affects of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) that comes into effect on March 25th, the advice is often tainted with over-complication.
