Technology and Data

In our previous webinar we highlighted technology and data as one of five key areas for organisations to focus on to gain a competitive advantage. Many have had to change the way they utilise technology over the past year – whether hardware, software or online cloud-based systems – and those who have got it right are seeing the rewards.

But while technology has an increasing role to play in the operation and success of many businesses, it can also bring its own challenges. Organisations need to be aware of potential risks when stepping up their tech and data use – ensuring that technology is tested, updated and monitored, and data is securely stored and processed.

In this webinar we will explore data protection three years on from the implementation of GDPR (known from 1 January 2021 as the UK GDPR) and the business risks associated with data breaches. Our panellists will highlight practical steps on how businesses can work with data and technology in order to safely host, process and transfer data within their organisation as well as looking at ways to manage and mitigate cyber risk.

Joining us on this webinar is the founder and CEO of Sportable Technologies, Dugald MacDonald, who will be sharing how the company is using technology and data to transform the world of contact sports for players, teams and spectators.

Our panellists will discuss:

  • Advantages of increased use of technology for organisations
  • Risks associated with inappropriate technology/poor implementation
  • Auditing current tech and rolling out new tech across your organisation
  • UK GDPR compliance, data breaches and international transfer of data
  • Best practice for using data and technology safely and effectively

Who should attend?

Anyone involved with managing risk, technology and/or data in any organisation large or small, who wants to develop their teams, systems and processes.
