What is the GDPR? And are you prepared? Do you know what you need to do to ready your organisation, how to do it and when it needs to be done?

On 25 May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force.

The GDPR and the proposed ePrivacy Regulation represent the most fundamental shake up of data protection law in over 20 years.

Brodies and PA Consulting are jointly hosting an event at The Sheraton in Edinburgh to mark the one year countdown, with contributions from:

  • Ken MacDonald, Head of ICO Regions, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)
  • Elliot Rose, GDPR and digital trust expert, PA Consulting
  • David Scott, CISO from Standard Life
  • Brodies LLP’s market leading Data Protection and Information Law team

Our panel of experts will discuss the steps that your organisation should be taking to prepare for the GDPR, bring you up to date with the most recent guidance from the ICO and the Article 29 Working Party, summarise the latest position on the draft ePrivacy Regulation and the implications of Brexit. We will also consider how organisations can use compliance with the GDPR as an opportunity to generate customer insights and create competitive advantage. There will also be a Q&A session at which you can ask our panel for their views on the issues that challenge you the most on GDPR compliance.
