W&B Event: Getting Ready for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Join us for this training and networking event in the Henry Mendus Room at our new Oxford office on Wednesday 13 September 2017.

On 25 May 2018, new laws governing the use of all personal data will come into effect throughout the European Union. Known as the GDPR, this will require all businesses that have operations in, or do business with, the EU to comply with the strictest data protection laws in the world.

In this session, our specialist data protection team will provide useful, practical advice on preparing your business to be compliant with the GDPR, which includes the following changes:

• Higher fines of €20,000,000 or 4% of total worldwide annual turnover

• Wider international scope, capturing businesses not physically established in the EU

• Stronger requirements for individual consent

• Data security breach reporting requirements

• New options for international data transfers

• Data protection by design and by default

• Stronger rights for individuals including deletion and portability

• Mandatory data protection officers for businesses that meet certain criteria
