GDPR in the Private Sector Conference: Preparing business for data regulation
“Rapid technological developments and globalisation have brought new challenges for the protection of personal data … Those developments require a strong and more coherent data protection framework.” – EU guide to GDPR
Despite the vote to leave the European Union, the Government has confirmed that the General Data Protection Regulation will be enshrined in UK law from May 2018. This means that British businesses now have less than a year to prepare for the biggest shake-up in data protection legislation in decades, or risk incurring severe fines. As the UK’s digital economy grows, more and more companies are dependent on their ability to gather, transfer and analyse large amounts of data. With requirements covering everything from customer opt-ins and transparency to the compulsory appointment of a data protection officer, GDPR will have a disruptive impact on the way businesses operate.
Join us for the GDPR in the Private Sector Conference where expert speakers will explain how businesses of all sizes can ensure they are prepared for the changes in legislation. Understand how GDPR will affect everything from digital marketing to customer loyalty schemes, learn how to protect your company from the threat of data breaches and make sure your IT systems meet the latest regulations.
