Leading Irish and international experts on privacy and data security will debate the impact of the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) at the DataSec 2017 conference, which takes place at the RDS in Dublin tomorrow.

The GDPR, which comes into effect in May 2018, will bring in significant changes in how consumer data is stored and protected - with serious fines for non-compliant organisations.

The event will be opened by Communications Minister Denis Naughten.

Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon, senior counsel Pauline Walley, and Stewart Thompson, privacy manager ar IBM Watson Health, are among those who will address the day-long forum.

Leading legal firms will be attending, and there's a strong representation from a cross-section of tech and expert companies.

The conference will be moderated by Independent News & Media's technology editor, Adrian Weckler.

While much of the attention relating to data breaches involves large companies whose online security has been breached by hackers, research has consistently shown that the major cause of data protection breaches are employees who take data out of the office.

The DataSec 2017 conference takes place in the RDS in Dublin tomorrow. The event will provide expert speakers, information and insight to help businesses comply with GDPR and get the most out of the legislation. Full line-up and details of ticket sales are available on independent.ie/datasec or call 01 7055397
