Data Protection and Privacy. 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 both came into enforcement on the 25th May, 2018 and businesses are having to adapt and evolve within a new set of parameters. 

Businesses that don't adapt run the risk of falling foul to fines and reputational damage, and will most certainly fall behind those who are adapting. 

Complying with new regulations is never easy, it is often complex and can drain resources and consume the time of key employees and teams. However, once implemented it opens up new opportunities and removes the dread of non-compliance. 

The Data Protection World Forum (DPWF) has naturally evolved from the GDPR Summit Series which focussed specifically on the European General Data Protection Regulation which saw over 3,000 delegates attending from across 20 countries. 

The DPWF will provide a broader focus across the data protection and privacy space amidst the progressive tightening of global data protection laws.

The GDPR Summit aims to provide actionable, practical advice for organisations to continue their drive to achieve ongoing GDPR compliance and gain a strategic advantage over competitors.

Part of the UK’s leading GDPR event series, supported by Henley Business School’s GDPR Transition Programme, the Summit brings together an unrivalled selection of the UK’s leading data protection experts and practitioners.

Described as high impact, content rich and jargon-free; over 40 expert speakers will be on-hand throughout the conference to enrich your GDPR journey:

- discuss best practice approaches

- share experiences and solutions

- update on latest cases and enforcement activity

- understand the latest guidance on global data transfers

- identify the latest software to manage data for GDPR

The GDPR is set to affect all businesses that process data of EU citizens; previous attendees have come from a wide array of industries and sectors.​

The GDPR Summit consists of three dedicated keynote theatres;


Each keynote theatre will explore how the GDPR is effecting these business-critical processes now and into the future:
