The session was chaired by Data Protection specialists Vanessa de Froberville and Jocelyn Paulley of the international law firm Gowling WLG, in association with LexisNexis, C&I London and Douglas Scott.
The emphasis of the event was more than just an overview of the new regulations; it also facilitated practical discussions so that delegates could share opinion on the impact of the impending implementation including the much-debated topic of who in a company should bear responsibility for compliance and how in-house lawyers can engage the leaders of their business.
