Breakout Sessions Focused on Operational Realities and International Perspective

A Post-Brexit Perspective:
Managing Personal Data Breaches

How will Brexit affect breach management and notification obligations with respect to the ‘U.K. GDPR’ and EU GDPR requirements? This session will share the latest updates on Brexit, highlight specifics of the ICO’s requirements, and provide practical advice for ongoing incident and breach management in the post-Brexit era.

Navigating Adtech GDPR Compliance: A Game of Risk

The adtech industry will need to change its practices and systems to avoid enforcement actions. In this session, legal experts will explain how the GDPR applies to adtech, and how practitioners can minimise risk and continue to rely on data-driven advertising against a changing legal landscape.

Privacy, Disrupted:
The Impact of the Technology Revolution

Collecting personal data through connected devices, facial recognition and other new technologies places management teams under intensifying scrutiny about issues ranging from strategy to ethics and environmental impacts. This session will focus on tech’s impact on privacy from the business, consumer and regulatory perspectives, and how to strike a balance between the three. 

Global Privacy Law Developments: Brazil, China and India

These countries all intend to regulate privacy comprehensively but take different approaches to issues including the notion of privacy and rights of individuals. Speakers will share best practices to help organisations ensure compliance and discuss areas that are subject to further legislative developments.
