The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force in May 2016 and will apply from May 2018, after a two-year transitional period. Being a major overhaul of the EU data protection regulatory framework, the GDPR imposes many new requirements for which the main actors need to be adequately prepared.
The International Data Protection Seminar is designed for data protection professionals working in industry, policy and public affairs, providing an insight into how to handle the difficulties arising in daily data protection practices. Scheduled just one month after the passing of the GDPR deadline, the seminar will examine the challenges that come with the new regulation. In particular, the question of whether there is an unwritten grace period and how long this period may be, will be explored. In addition to receiving guidance on how to implement the GDPR in a short period of time, participants will also be given the opportunity to debate the most recent developments in the field of data protection with experts from business, public authorities and NGOs.
