CMS is hosting its half-day Data Protection Conference on Friday 24 February 2017 at our London headquarters, Cannon Place. 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was formally adopted on 4 May 2016 and is set to replace most EU data protection legislation. Unlike the current Directive, the GDPR will be directly applicable in all EU Member States without the need for national legislation.

Notwithstanding the UK’s vote to leave the EU, the GDPR will still be relevant in the UK (see our Law-Now article here for an analysis). It will apply from 25 May 2018. Are you ready?

Our conference will focus on the practical considerations and effects that implementing a compliance programme in relation to the GDPR will have on your business.
