GDPR – one year on HCR helps businesses tackle data breaches

8th April 2019

Delegates in London and Bristol have faced up to the reality of a data breach under the GDPR, which has now been in place almost a year, in events led by experts from HCR and Marsh Ltd.

The oversubscribed London event, at Marsh’s offices at Tower Place East in the City, was mirrored at the Bristol event at Gloucestershire County Cricket Club‘s ground in Bristol.

Delegates were faced with a scenario in which their business suffer a cyber-attack and has lost critical data. They dealt with questions about the potential reputational and financial impacts, breach and risk management, and what would be covered by cyber risk insurance.

From HCR, Steven Murray and Adam Finch shared their expertise and insights, while Eric Alter, Marsh’s senior vice president also spoke, along with Stephen Bailey and Paul Barks of the NCC Group to help delegates to develop appropriate response plans, enabling them to mitigate the impact of a data breach.

The events are part of a series which culminates in an event on May 14 at the Hilton Puckrup Hall Hotel, looking at ‘where we are’ in relation to the law and compliance – a look at recommendations from the ICO, what’s changed in the last year, how it’s really played out and how Brexit fits within the mix.

It will also consider how businesses have responded, with real case studies and guest speakers, and again sum up what is needed in the case of a data breach. Steven will again by joined by Eric Alter, as well as by James Ashe, managing partner of Alias. James will address how to minimise the risk to your brand.

The event, which runs from 9am to 12.30pm, will include a sector-based round table discussion, so that delegates can discuss learning and best practice approaches to embedding the GDPR with sector peers.
