Face Challenging Times With Confidence

The GDPR kicks in this year as Brexit moves ahead, technology changes the landscape, and news of breaches heightens the public’s awareness of data security. Make sense of it all at the IAPP Europe Data Protection Intensive 2018. With incisive speakers, informative breakout sessions, hands-on workshops, and unequalled networking opportunities, you’ll leave the Intensive with confidence to face the year ahead.

It’s all in a new, larger venue at the elegant Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in London’s historic Whitechapel district. More space means more education and more networking with the top thinkers and doers in data protection.

The UK is charting its own course while remaining part of the global economic community. Be part of the new direction by registering for the Intensive today.
