Time: 3.30pm - 7.00pm
3.00pm - 3.30pm: Registration and welcome coffee
3.30pm - 4.00pm: Keynote interview: Data protection in Brexit Europe
4.00pm - 5.00pm: Piecing together the puzzle: the GDPR at member state level
Although the GDPR shows the desire for one harmonised legal framework for data protection in the EU, political concessions were necessary to gain passage of the regulation across the region. Which areas, and which industries, will that affect the most at the member state level? What differences in interpretation and enforcement, both by national authorities and courts, must companies be aware of, and how should their compliance programmes reflect those? Can the mechanisms of the GDPR counteract these differences over time?
5.00pm - 6.00pm: Data breaches: is the GDPR the solution companies need?
It was broken, and it needed fixing: data breach notification across the EU under the current system is a nightmare for companies, and the GDPR does introduce strict, but harmonised rules on notification. However, will these new rules really reduce the compliance burden of companies that suffer a data breach in the EU, or increase it? Which aspects of the new notification regime may be difficult to comply with in practice, and how should companies best prepare? How does the EU compare with the US and elsewhere?
