Today’s global change, tomorrow’s action item

In today’s data protection environment, the line between global and local is blurry—when it exists at all. Learn to adapt and thrive in this era of global change at the IAPP Data Protection Intensive: UK 2019.

The Intensive’s traditional emphasis on operations will be even stronger in 2019. Workshops and breakout sessions will focus on building fundamentally sound data protection systems that can react to change. You will find skills and knowledge on topics ranging from data breach response to operationalising new regulations. During evening general sessions, speakers will put broad issues that affect data protection into perspective. And as always, networking events will offer opportunities to connect with other U.K. data protection professionals.

The GDPR and U.K. Data Protection Act are in full force. New laws like the California Consumer Privacy Law and India’s Personal Data Protection Bill are on the horizon. Brexit looms over the U.K. data protection community. Come to the Intensive and find direction.

Breakout Sessions that Dissect the Issues

Innovative and Regulatory Oversight

Innovating with new applications of personal data routinely leads the innovator into regulatory barriers. Regulators say they’re protecting the public. Developers say they’re stifling progress. This session will explore how creative approaches like regulatory ‘sandboxes’ can balance the public’s needs for data protection on the one hand and economic development on the other.

Here Comes the Audit! What Now?

Regulators are growing comfortable with their new GDPR authority, and auditors are taking notice. Audit activity is increasing. If you’ve never been audited, your turn might be coming. This session will explore how to set up and be ready to manage an audit, regardless of who’s coming to peek under the covers.

How to Build Defensible Position Under the GDPR

It’s inevitable that most organisations will eventually face some kind of GDPR enforcement action. Unable to completely avoid it, the best response is to build a strong position from which to defend data use practices. This session will outline five key components based on the GDPR that organisations should focus on to create a defensible position.
