Compliance is not a choice

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will definitely come into force on May 25 2018. It requires organisations to adhere to a host of strict data protection rules for processing the data of EU residents and will penalise those who are non- compliant. How ready are you to meet this deadline? It could be a costly mistake to ignore the regulation until it becomes enforceable!

Heralding a new era in the regulation of personal data processing in Europe, the GDPR amplifies and expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal information is collected and processed and places new obligations squarely on the shoulders of organisations that collect personal data.

Ignorance is not a defence

Businesses must prepare for the May 2018 deadline to have in place new standards for consent and the range of accountability requirements set out under the new law. Companies will no longer be able to sit on their hands and plead ignorance as non compliance will result in substantial fines of up to €20million or 4% of annual turnover. You need to get prepared… and fast!

But, every challenge also presents opportunity and compliance with GDPR allows you to present yourself as ethical, trustworthy and responsible. So, do you want to be trusted or fined?

Through expert presentations, discussions and user experience case studies, we’ll explore the following topics:

View from the Regulator

A status update from the European Data Protection Supervisor (the EU’s independent data protection authority)

Demystifying the GDPR

Understanding how it will impact your business

Countdown to GDPR

The ultimate checklist to make sure you are ready

What if you haven’t even started?
