With a keynote address from:
-Karen Bradley MP, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport
Taking place twelve months before the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force across the EU, and in the context of recent high profile data breaches at Yahoo, Three and Tesco Bank, amongst others, this event will provide an opportunity for delegates to discuss and debate the future for European data protection policy – including reform of the ePrivacy Directive – assess the challenges and opportunities for GDPR implementation and consider how the UK data protection framework might evolve post-Brexit.
With 57% of businesses admitting to knowing ‘little’ or ‘nothing’ about GDPR, delegates will examine the key implementation and compliance challenges facing data controllers and processors across the UK. Attendees will consider the legal basis for collecting, processing and storing personal data under GDPR, analyse best-practice compliance procedures, the challenges and opportunities of elevating data protection to a board level concern (and ensuring senior management are aware of the organisations obligations) and consider emerging skills requirements, including the role of the Data Protection Officer.
Sessions will examine the role of Government, the Information Commissioner’s Office, and the European Data Protection Supervisor in supporting organisations, particularly start-up’s and SMEs, through the compliance process, assess the value of a GDPR public awareness campaign across key sectors, and consider the key enforcement challenges for regulators.
Attendees will analyse how organisations are transitioning to Privacy by Design, the potential impact on business operations and consider how systems and procedures may need to be upgraded to improve security, consent and facilitate data portability and the right to be forgotten.
Discussion will also focus on the challenges and opportunities of balancing privacy rights with the commercial value of data, including the impact on innovation in IoT, M2M and marketing, as well as digital and online services, and the need to ensure that consumers are still able to benefit from online propositions such as targeted advertising, special offers and other services.
With the Secretary of State for Culture, Media & Sport declaring that ‘it would be expected’ that the UK would enact GDPR delegates will consider to what extent there is still uncertainty regarding the future UK data protection framework; the role of Government and the ICO in clarifying the current and future data protection obligations of UK businesses; and the options for amending GDPR post-Brexit to create a bespoke UK data protection framework.
Discussions will also focus on the impact on cross-border data sharing and options for ensuring the UK’s post-Brexit data protection regulatory framework is deemed ‘equivalent’ or ‘adequate’ by European regulators.
