New General Data Protection Regulation

On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become law, marking the biggest change to Data Protection law in twenty years.

Changes include:

  • increased hurdles for obtaining consents to data processing.
  • new breach notification requirements.
  • obligations to evidence privacy by design and harsher penalties when things go wrong.

All companies need to re-evaluate how they manage data to ensure they are prepared for the new regime. Join us for an interactive discussion on the implications and the preparatory steps to be taken now, led by Sophie Gould of LexisNexis and Iain Larkins of Radius Law.

Register your interest and reserve your place now by emailing yorkshire@cigroup.org.uk.
