GDPR & Data Security: West Sussex Recover & Rise SME Digital Accelerator - Free Webinar image

In this session data security expert, Jo Brianti from JLB Business Consulting will guide you through the data security minefield - understanding your obligations in collecting and holding customer data, including GDPR and take you through the options and tools for keeping data secure.


This workshop is for small business owners who are unsure about GDPR, what it means for their business and how to apply it.

Perhaps you have done some reading or research but remain confused or overwhelmed or you may be a small business owner who feels on top of GDPR but wants reassurance you are doing the right things.

This session will be a mix of theory and practical to help you learn the underpinning knowledge and importantly how to apply this to your business with immediate actions to take away

I had a GDPR consultation with Jo and it was absolutely fantastic. She spoke in a jargon free way that I understood and was very clear about what I needed to implement to be GDPR ready for my business. Wish I had spoken to her sooner instead of reading every article I could find under the sun! Highly recommend

  • What do these mean for your business and examples of how to apply them
  • Simple actions you can take NOW to support your compliance


  • What is GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018?

  • What is a lawful basis for processing? How does this apply to my business?

Jo very kindly provided data protection advice and guidance to support some of my client work. She was very knowledgeable herself and also drew from resources to substantiate her thinking. She came up with a number of options to the challenges I posed and helped me navigate through some of the trickier GDPR points. Most importantly I left the conversation with confidence and clarity - invaluable!
