On May 25th, 2018 the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become law in the UK, marking the biggest shake up in data protection laws in 20 years. The Government has confirmed that the Brexit vote will have no impact on the legislation, leaving UK organisations with just a year to ensure their data systems are compliant with the new rules. The GDPR will introduce a series of stringent requirements around transparency, customer opt-ins and reporting data breaches, with severe fines for organisations which fail to comply. With the UK’s growing digital economy increasingly dependent on gathering, transferring and manipulating large data sets, the significance of the GDPR cannot be overstated.

Join us for the General Data Protection Regulation Conference where leading experts will explain how the new laws will transform the landscape of data use in the UK.
