The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 25 2018 and will be enforceable on many UK businesses.


Loretta Maxfield of Thorntons Law LLP has more than 10 years’ experience in advising a range of public bodies, research/education institutions and private businesses (up to £300m+ turnover) on data protection, privacy and other regulatory matters.

In the Club’s first Learning Lunch, which was a joint-event with Fife Women In Business, Loretta explained to attendees:

  • What GDPR is
  • How it will affect businesses
  • What they need to do to ensure compliance
  • Penalties if they don’t

The event was very much enjoyed by all who attended, who said they found it very useful.
