Bird & Bird's Data Protection Compliance Support Group

10 May 2016

15:00 - 19:00

Bird & Bird, 15 Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1JP

In 2015, Bird & Bird launched a quarterly support group for those responsible for data protection compliance within their organisations, to help them identify and discuss the key actions which they should be prioritising and pitfalls to avoid given the momentous changes which are being implemented in this area of law.

We have two dates to choose from for our May meeting – Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 18th. Interactive discussions will be held on topics including: the GDPRs 'Privacy Impact Assessment' and 'record of processing activity' requirements, how to map data within your organisation, and an update on the EU-US Privacy Shield.

The meetings will provide an informal, round-table setting for those involved in this important area of compliance to share ideas and experiences and to discuss the challenges they face. Drinks and an opportunity to network with other guests will follow the meeting. In particular, those new to data protection compliance will be catered for, although the group is suitable for those with all levels of experience and whether from a legal, regulatory, HR or security background.
