The retail industry is committed to complying with the National Minimum Wage (NMW) regulations. But we know that the regulations are complex and understanding how they work in practice can be difficult.
Falling foul of the regulations can result in:
Repayments for up to 6 years (including current and ex-employees) increased to reflect the prevailing NMW rates; penalties of up to 200% of the underpayments identified; and public naming and shaming by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
It is not easy to spot where and why breaches can occur, or how to remedy them. PwC have a specialist team who have a great deal of experience in assisting retailers to identify and manage potential compliance risks around NMW. This is based on our understanding of the technical aspects of the regulations and also our practical experience of the approach taken by HMRC when they perform their audits.
The webinar that we are running in February will take you through what is involved in a NMW audit and the top areas that HMRC will focus on during an audit. We will suggest some immediate actions and take questions.

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new data regulation that requires all companies that process data on EU residents to comply with strict policies. In scope are customers, data on behalf of customers, employees, vendors, or contractors. Many US companies are just learning of GDPR or understanding that, despite perhaps not directly doing business in the EU, they may unexpectedly be required to put substantial safeguards into place to be compliant. The kicker is, companies have only until May 25th, 2018 to put these safeguards into place.
In this webinar, we’re joined by special guest, Jodi Daniels, Privacy Consultant and Founder of Red Clover Advisors, and Andrew Richardson, Elite SEM Director of Analytics, who will walk us through everything you need to know regarding:

- how you and your company will be affected, even if you don’t directly do business in the EU
- what actions you and your company should be taking in order to avoid high penalties

Guidance to achieving compliance with new EU regulations
With the EU Regulation 611/2013 for ISP/TelCo operators coming into force, the European regulatory framework is giving more precise guidance on the required security measures. The key objective of the EU Regulation is to limit data breaches and incidents.
Measures that limit data breaches and incidents are central to the EU regulations, when applied correctly by an organizations security teams.
Encryption is the most important recommended measure to achieve compliance and allows the data to become unintelligible. With Encryption organisations can reduce the residual privacy risks to a negligible level.
Extended EU regulations with a wider target are expected: The new EU Data Protection Regulation and the Directive on Networks & Information Security (NIS) are both pending EU final approval to come into force.
Attend this webinar and discover how to keep your customers data safe and reduce the risk of having to notify a data breach to your customers under the new EU regulations.

The Gemalto’s Breach Level Index reported 1.4 billion data records compromised worldwide in 2016, up 86% from 2015. Closer to home, there were 44 & 16 voluntarily reported breaches in Australia and New Zealand respectively. With the new Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 in Australia, these numbers are expected to increase dramatically as organisations are required to declare any “eligible data breaches”.
Navigating these regulations such as the Australian Privacy Act and European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the impact they will have can be daunting. Organisations must start planning ahead to mitigate the potential risks of being non-compliant. The implications of a data breach can go beyond compliance. In 2014, the Target breach had a massive impact on the company’s brand reputation, while last year’s announcement of the Yahoo! data breach cost the company nearly $1.7 billion in stock market value.
During this webinar, Helaine Leggat, an legal expert in data protection regulations will discuss the Australian Privacy Act Amendment in detail, what it means for businesses in Australia and internationally. Graeme Pyper, Regional Director at Gemalto will provide recommendations to help prepare for the 2018 deadline. We will share industry best practices and methodologies companies can evaluate to simplify a government audit process. Join our experts to ask questions and learn more about:
•The local and global government data privacy regulations (Australia and Europe)
•Gauging the true cost of a data breach and how to reduce the scope of risk
•Understanding privacy by design throughout business
•Strategies for simplifying operations for regulation and internal audits
•Determining current industry compliance, which may be applicable to the APA and GDPR
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will have an impact both in the EU and around the world. Organizations that act now and have a clear data protection plan will have a competitive edge helping them to build trusted customer relationships and drive business growth.

Since 13 June 2016, European Union Member States applied new rules for placing radio equipment on the European market and putting them into service. From 13 June this year, all radio equipment being placed on the market or put into service must comply with the new Radio Equipment Directive (RED), 2014/53/EU.
