About the 2017 Forum

In a recent Ernst & Young privacy and security survey, 38% of respondents admitted that they address security in new business processes and technologies, but not privacy specifically. Even more concerning is that nearly half (46%) of survey respondents admitted that their main concern is not having a clear picture of where personal information is stored or processed outside of their main systems and servers (which will not be tolerated under GDPR).

So as the onus of accountability shifts from regulators to organisations, you need ensure that GDPR is seen as a business wide objective that requires collaboration, vision, strong leadership and buy-in from the Board.

Thomson Reuters is therefore delighted to bring you the 6th Annual Future of Data Protection Forum.

The conference will look at the type of GDPR plan your business needs to avoid putting your business and reputation at risk.


Attend this event and find out how to:

  • Gain understanding on the European Commission and ICO view on the future of GDPR across Europe and beyond
  • Develop an operational road-map to embrace GDPR and develop sustainable privacy
  • Win the hearts and minds of the business to develop a culture willing to embed data protection
  • Practically consider the  impact of new E-privacy Regulation
  • Make the most of your data and GDPR compliance:  Use data to talk to your customers better
  • Discover practical approaches that your peers have taken to get on to the road to compliance

New to 2017 – We will be running more interactive breakout sessions than ever before – giving you the chance to have your questions answered on a number of leading areas of interest.
