Kerwin Blackburn and intern Lee Casey attended the Broadland Business Breakfast Forum on Wednesday 12 July at Sprowston Manor, where the issues of changing data protection laws and adapting to today's online world were discussed.
The topic of the changing data protection laws explored how our relationships with data are evolving and the considerations that businesses must take ahead of the new General Data Protection Regulation being introduced in May 2018.
Interestingly, although these are EU regulations, it turns out that any business supplying goods and services to EU citizens must adhere to these rules - which may also be indicative of how other EU legislation could continue to apply to the UK following the nation's impending departure from the European Union.
The forum also featured the top tips for adapting to the online world, with key takeaways including the importance of having a responsive website (we launched a responsive version us2uconsulting.com earlier in 2017!) and the need to engage with 'digital natives'.
