With our first five GDPR conferences having sold out, we are happy to confirm that we will be running the 6th Edition of this conference in London on the 28th September 2017.


Despite Brexit results, the UK government has announced that GDPR implementations will go ahead in May 2018.

As a regulation rather than a directive, it will be directly applicable without additional national legislation. All businesses will be effected by the most important change in data privacy law for twenty years and there is an urgent need for employers and HR professionals to start preparing now.

This event will focus on the impact of GDPR on employers and the HR function, featuring contributions from leading legal experts in data protection and compliance; representatives from the ICO and government; a case study from Accenture and an expert panel.

Hear Key sessions from:
DLA Piper LLP, The Privacy Practice, Accenture, Bird & Bird LLP, Henley Business School, Fieldfisher LLP, The Privacy Parnership

Delegates will understand and analyse the implications to their organisations and what their obligations will be, equipping them with the tools to meet the requirement of the GDPR by successfully preparing for the changes.
