Join us on June 13th to discuss Data Privacy, GDPR and much more ...

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU Regulation that became effective on May 25th, 2018. GDPR not only affects companies located in the EU but also those throughout the world that have operations and customers in the EU. An entity may be within the scope of the GDPR if it processes personal data of EU data subjects. The key principle of GDPR is giving consumers control of their data. Fines of up to 4% of total global turnover could be imposed if rules in the GDPR are breached. 

The speakers will cover GDPR legislation and its effect on privacy and data security from different angles - from policy to compliance, from tech and tools to impact on businesses. 

Come with your questions! Networking and drinks before and after the panel.
