Bird & Bird's data protection team is pleased to invite you to a workshop on the new EU Data Protection Rules on Tuesday 7 February 2012 from 15.00.
The new 'General Data Protection Regulation' was published officially this month. The Regulation promises greater harmonisation but will bring a significantly harsher regime, requiring more action by organisations with tough penalties of up to 2% of worldwide turnover for the most serious data protection breaches.
Please join us on Tuesday 7 February to hear about the impact of the new rules, what the legislative process will be from here on and who the key players are. We are delighted that a senior policy adviser from the Minsistry of Justice will also attend to talk about the UK Government's perspective on the changes, their plans for negotiation and how organisations can engage with MoJ on this process.
