Two Days of Operational Best Practices

Reserve your calendar for 12-13 February in Paris as we prepare another knowledge-rich programme for the second annual IAPP Data Protection Intensive: France 2020. Once again, all sessions will be delivered in parallel tracks — one in French, the other in English.

You will explore how to manage a data protection programme, demystify DPIAs and learn how global developments and regulations could impact your work.

We are assembling a strong roster of expert, local faculty representing legal, technical, regulatory compliance and marketing disciplines, to address the very latest developments in privacy and data protection taking place locally, regionally and around the world.

Register today to secure your chance to network, learn from and share ideas with CNIL regulators, privacy officers, senior counsels and data protection professionals from across France and Europe.

Informative Sessions

How to Manage a Privacy Programme

In this session, panellists will discuss their experiences managing privacy operations, detailing real-world stories of building and implementing their privacy teams, including pointing out mistakes to avoid, and how to respond appropriately to data breaches.

Talks for DPOs by French DPOs

In this fast-paced, 90-minute session, we hear from French DPOs about their experiences a year after the GDPR implementation. Delegates can expect the same animated and informative discussions from panellists that made this session one of the most popular last year.

Global Developments: CCPA and Beyond

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) stands to radically change the way all organisations handle personal data. In this session, you will hear about new laws and legislative initiatives, and how they will change the way you do business internationally.

The Regulators’ View

In the GDPR era, organisations are in frequent contact with supervisory authorities to get guidance, report breaches, or register risky data protection impact assessments. Get ready for a panel discussion exploring how to work most effectively with regulators, and what they see on the horizon.
