GDPR Impact Briefings

In just over a year the General Data Protection Regulation will become enforced on all UK organisations. In that time firms, like yours - which rely on personal information to generate value - need to ensure your culture, processes, policies and technologies are compliant. 

Building on last year’s first-to-market insights and fully-subscribed series of events, this is an opportunity to benchmark your level of preparation and to gain an understanding of consumer concerns, as well as to sense-check your own GDPR plans against what the broader marketplace is considering. 

It is also your first chance to learn what our exclusive new research reveals about the impact of the GDPR on you and your customers.

Each event is delivered by DataIQ in partnership with business partners who offer specific domain expertise and solutions to help you become GDPR compliant. Each session will also offer expert legal insight into how the GDPR will be converted into UK law and what enforcement will look like from May 2018.
