Workshop on GDPR scheduled
The Production Managers Association is holding an evening workshop on data protection and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in central London on 2 August.
The session will cover a range of topics relating to the recent changes in the data protection law with particular reference to how it affects production managers and TV production generally.
During the two-hour practical session, Nigel Abbas and lawyers from media law firm Abbas Media Law will explain the key rules and changes, with discussion points including the changes that GDPR has introduced; what PMs need to do next; data protection myths 'debunked' and a Q&A.
The event gears up at 1830 for a prompt 1900 start. Click here for more details on the venue and how to get tickets.
