Event description

Description

The General Data Protection Regulation comes into force on 25th May 2018 after a two-year transition period. It has been created to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union - as well as the export of personal data outside the EU.

At a time when personal data, privacy and the financial power of big data are under close scrutiny GDPR will introduce a new set of rights and responsibilities for EU citizens and businesses.

This conference will look at the impact of GDPR on the Isle of Man and our economy, the role of Government and private business, and the changes it will bring about in the way we handle data in future.

The Isle of Man has an adequacy decision which is based upon the current provisions of the Data Protection Act 2002, allowing it to do business and in particular carry out international transfers of data. It is important for the Isle of Man to retain its adequacy and ensure equivalence of legislation which also takes into account the new and enhanced rights, fines and penalties within the GDPR by enacting its own legislation.

The Isle of Man will implement new law in two new Orders in Council made under the European Communities (Isle of Man) Act 1973 for each of the GDPR, and also the Police and Criminal Justice Directive (also known as the Law Enforcement Directive), which contains similar provisions for organisations processing data for the purposes of crime prevention, investigation, and law enforcement. These Orders will in turn repeal the existing Data Protection Act 2002 and instead will be supplemented by a set of Isle of Man Regulations which mirror the provisions of the Data Protection Act 2002 but which will be augmented to reflect the requirements of the GDPR and LED.

Speakers and Panel include representatives from the:

  • Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce

  • IOM Government Cabinet Office

  • IOM Information Commissioner

  • Private Sector representation

  • Attorney General’s Chambers
