Compliance is not a choice

‘Driven by demand, and it’s game-changing importance, this will be our 3rd GDPR Summit in the space of just 7 months. This is unprecedented for us. No other topic area has ever generated this amount of attention’. Michael Nolan, MD, SBP Events

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 25 2018. It requires organisations to adhere to a host of strict data protection rules for processing the data of EU residents and will penalise those who are non- compliant. How ready are you to meet this deadline?

Heralding a new era in the regulation of personal data processing in Europe, the GDPR amplifies and expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal information is collected and processed and places new obligations squarely on the shoulders of organisations that collect personal data.

Ignorance is not a defence

Businesses must be ready for the May 2018 deadline to have in place new standards for consent and the range of accountability requirements set out under the new law. Companies will no longer be able to sit on their hands and plead ignorance as non compliance will result in substantial fines of up to €20million or 4% of annual turnover.

But, every challenge also presents opportunity and compliance with GDPR allows you to present yourself as ethical, trustworthy and responsible. So, do you want to be trusted or fined?


Through expert presentations, discussions and user experiences, we’ll explore the following topics:

View from the Regulator

Key messages from the Data Protection Commissioner


Changing attitudes to data and information governance

Countdown to GDPR

The requirements, deadlines and facts

Case Studies

Learn from a range of organisations sharing their insights on GDPR implementation success
