As the General Data Protection Regulation is about to enter into application on May 25th 2018, it’s time to provide you with insights, cases and roadmaps on how to become GDPR compliant.
The GDPR is a regulation by which the EU intend to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the EU.
It’s a topic that concerns your whole company.
At the GDPR Conference Belgium, you will understand the implications of the regulation. How to ensure your company, association or organization is compliant. How to avoid heavy fines and loss of reputation. Discover if you are one of those companies that need to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO).
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the European Council and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The primary objectives of the GDPR are to give citizens and residents back control of their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. When the GDPR takes effect it will replace the data protection directive (officially Directive 95/46/EC) from 1995. The regulation was adopted on 27 April 2016. It applies from 25 May 2018 after a two-year transition period and, unlike a directive, it does not require any enabling legislation to be passed by national governments.
The first ‘GDPR Conference’ in Belgium, fully dedicated to the General Data Protection Regulation, entering into application on May 25th, next year. A day that concerns your whole organization.
