EVENT: The Data Protection Practical Compliance Conference

12th October 2017 - 13th October 2017

12th & 13th October 2017 – London, UK

The Data Protection Practical Compliance Conference is London’s largest annual 2-day data protection event.

This year, the conference is dedicated to explaining the practical implications of the new General Data Protection Regulation, and to help organisations prepare for its requirements.

This Conference provides plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion, as well as networking with other Information and Compliance professionals and advisers. Delegates attend a 3-course sit-down lunch on both days, as well as a wine and canapés reception at the end of the first day.
