The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is here to stay; it’s a journey, not a destination that requires compliant policies, robust processes and continuous evaluation.

The 25th May enforcement date represented just the beginning of GDPR compliance for all businesses, large and small. 

"Organisations need to sustain their compliance process over time – this is the best way to take people with you on your business journey."

Steve Wood, Deputy Commissioner for Policy at the ICO

Wherever you are on your journey, GDPR: Navigating the Future, is the essential guide to achieving ongoing compliance for any business handling and processing personal data of a EU citizen.

This new era of regulation places full accountability and transparency onto the shoulders of businesses that collect personal data; severe sanctions may be levied for failure to comply. 

However the regulation also represents an opportunity to create a competitive advantage by presenting an ethical, trustworthy and responsible organisation. 

Our team of leading data protection and privacy experts will deliver a series of in-depth presentations, case studies and panel discussions designed to provide advice and actionable steps for managing your compliance strategy into the future.
