What is it about?
On 25 May last year, the single most well-publicised piece of legislation in recent memory came into force across Europe, namely, the GDPR.

Since then, a spate of other less known but equally important developments have followed:

  • the UK’s very own Data Protection Act 2018
  • the Data Protection (charges and information) Regulations 2018
  • several new or updated guidance’s from the Information Commissioner’s office as well as some notable enforcement action around Europe and in the UK in certain fields

Now that the dust has temporarily settled, where do you find yourselves in terms of your data protection compliance? On high alert - all systems go, stuck in a rut, overrated so parked until further notice, or simply, managing?

If you join us on Wednesday 25 September, we will provide you with some food for thought and help you consider next steps no matter where you fit into this spectrum.

What will be covered?

  • legislative developments – and where are we with Brexit?;
  • a case update – key takeaways;
  • problem areas – subject access requests, breaches and a healthy dose of common sense!;
  • enforcement;
  • e-privacy – much ado about nothing;
  • next steps – where the west wind is blowing.

Brunch will be provided

  • 09:30 Registration, refreshments and networking for a 10:00 start 
  • 11:00 Q&A, summary and closing remarks


Who will be there?
ACS data protection practitioners who live and breathe the challenges that have come with the new swathe of data protection developments. The event will provide delegates with a great opportunity to mingle with a variety of organisations and people from diverse backgrounds, all coming together to exchange their nous and crucially, to sound out the very real logistical and sometimes moral dilemmas that they face in complying with the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018.
