Data Protection Time For Lessons Learned

On May 25th 2018 the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force. As a result, we have seen a massive increase in awareness regarding the handling of Data. The fact that important fines are related to non-compliance of the regulation has ensured that no one takes compliance lightly.

In this context, the Data Protection Officer has a wonderful challenge on his plate as it bears important responsibilities. Almost one year after the GDPR deadline, we are able to see what the major difficulties have been, and we stand stronger to face future challenges on this matter.

During this conference we will discuss the lessons learned and most importantly acquire the knowledge and insight to be ready for what is to come. Join our experts to:
• Discuss upcoming regulations and how to prepare for them
• Learn from best practices regarding security breaches
• Gain a strategic vision on Data governance
• Be ready for inspections
• Take a closer look into the DPO’s day to day responsibilities

Audience: Data Protection Officers, Legal experts, Lawyers, Information Security, Auditors,
Data Scientist & Professionals, Project Managers ... aiming at getting involved in the data
protection field.

Sector A cross-section of industries: IT, Bank & Insurance, Telecom, Energy,
Automotive, Healthcare...

The price for the full day event, the lunch and a documentation is 399€ HTVA.
