GDPR and Brexit Event

GDPR and Brexit Event

22nd January 2018
11.00-13.00

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU regulation which will revolutionise the way in which EU governments and companies are able to gather, store, process and share personal data. After GDPR enters into force in May 2018, citizens of EU countries will gain the right to request the information an organisation holds about them.

In addition, companies have to seek explicit consent prior to storing someone’s personal data, in clear and simple language. These are just two in a long list of legal changes brought about by the GDPR.

The All Party Parliamentary Group for Data Analytics will outline the main regulatory features, how companies can adapt to them and put them in the overall policy context at this exclusive roundtable event.

The introduction of GDPR will affect Britain even after it leaves the European Union. GDPR is an extraterritorial regulatory framework, meaning any company holding data about EU citizens is obliged to comply with the GDPR’s data standards.

This is highly significant for UK businesses, particularly those holding personal data, such as banks and service providers, which together make up a large part of the UK economy.

This event will commence with a short presentation of a senior representative of the Information Commissioner’s Office (IOC) highlighting the major provisions of the GDPR, as well as their implications on UK citizens and businesses.

This will be followed up by a roundtable composed of leading industry representatives, academics and Parliamentarians. Matters arising will form the basis of a term paper written by the APGDA, which will be circulated to Members of Parliament, Peers and other senior policymakers to improve awareness of the complex legislative undertakings that GDPR represents.
