Event description

Description

The “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR) is a new set of rules coming into force May 25th 2018 that governs how businesses collect, use, and share data from European citizens. It dictates that companies must build proper data protection measures into their system design and infrastructure, or risk severe penalties. Businesses will face fines of up to 4% of global turnover for non-compliance, meaning it is critical for companies to understand what it means and how to comply.

The purpose of GDPR is to put individuals back in control of their own data. UK organisations handling personal data will still need to comply with the GDPR, regardless of Brexit. The GDPR will come into force before the UK leaves the European Union, and the government has confirmed that the Regulation will apply, a position that has been confirmed by the Information Commissioner.

Key speakers

  • Christian Toon, Chief Information Security Officer at Pinsent Masons

  • James Hampshire, Cyber security Senior manager at PwC

  • Stuart James, Partner at Squire Patton Boggs
