 Thursday 10th December 2020
8:00am - 4:30pm GMT
Virtual Event
The must-attend online event for the Data Protection and Technology community, featuring live keynote talks, breakouts and an interactive exhibition hall - all hosted live on a virtual platform. Free to attend for end-users working in IT, data protection and information security.

The Virtual Summit

When GDPR came into force it significantly raised the bar of obligation and accountability, ensuring that all organisations that handle personal data adhere to strict regulations around privacy, security and consent.

Over 2 years on from implementation and the landscape continues to shift, with the Schrems II ruling, geo-political tensions, and uncertainty around a post-Brexit adequacy decision creating a challenging environment for data protection practitioners.

 

​The DP 2020 Summit will consider how data protection has progressed, with insight from frontline practitioners reflecting on key trends, challenges and best practice. The event will also provide an update from the ICO; discussing the Age Appropriate Design Code, the Data Sharing Code of Practice, and examining some of the persisting areas of misconception and non-compliance.

 

Core conference topics for the online event include:

•    Key legal issues and obligations
•    Data protection and information security
•    Privacy Impact Assessments
•    Databases, data mapping and classification
•    Data flows and information sharing
