Dublin Data Sec 2018

9th April 2018, RDS Concert Hall, Dublin

DataSec 2017 Conference


The agenda and speakers for the DataSec 2017 conference, which takes place on May 3rd in the RDS Concert Hall have been announced, with speakers from across Europe attending to review all aspects of the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The GDPR will become law in May 2018 and will be the biggest change in data protection rules to occur in Ireland. It will apply to all businesses, large and small, and will bring in significant changes in how consumer data is stored and protected, with serious fines for non-compliant organisations. 

Speakers at the conference have been identified as among the leading experts in GDPR in Europe and will cover comprehensively the legal, ethical and practical impacts and changes of the legislation will bring, giving conference delegates a comprehensive overview of all you need to know about GDPR, including:

• How the GDPR will change the way you approach your business
• Why compliance alone is not enough
• How to secure your customers personal data
• What to do in the event of a data breach
• How to future proof your business

Conference registration is now open and places can be booked here. The full conference agenda is below:
