Workshop One: Looking ahead at the first six months of GDPR


Date & Time

Wednesday, 30 May

14:15 - 15:30


Sponsored by:

GDPR will have entered into force on the 25th of May, and while many companies will have hopefully finalised internal preparations, the first 6 months will provide important and significant learnings for GDPR compliance moving forward. In this workshop, we’ll look at some of the key considerations for companies updating and adapting their internal procedures and organizational measures to ensure GDPR compliance. Experiences with GDPR will vary, and despite the 25th of May milestone, compliance will remain an ongoing process. What tools and best practices are emerging in this space to support compliance journeys, and what signals, or precedents, can companies expect from regulators and enforcement bodies in the first 6 months? Where should follow-up efforts focus and what will the ‘post-GDPR’ environment look like? These are just some of the questions we hope to address with perspectives from industry players engaged on GDPR from a variety of angles.
