If you or your organisation have until now regarded data protection as a necessary legal requirement or, frankly, a regulatory burden, it is time to think again.
Increasingly, forward looking organisations are starting to regard data protection laws as a way to achieve a new relationship with both customers, prospects and, indeed, their staff. Those organisations which can find a way through the complex laws and regulations will be in a position to make privacy a competitive advantage. It is the purpose of this conference to help your organisation find a way forward appropriate for you with the help of world class presenters.
If you thought that the Freedom of Information Act is solely for the public sector, it is time for you to think again. To help you understand the new laws and regulations and assess their impact on you, Privacy Laws & Business has brought together an unrivalled group of 40 speakers from nine countries giving 50 presentations over three days including:

  • Elizabeth France, the UK's Information Commissioner, has now confirmed her presentations in three sessions, plus presentations from four of her colleagues, and Privacy Commissioners and/or their senior staff from Belgium, Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands and New Zealand
  • The European Commission staff member who prepares the ground for assessing non-EU countries' "adequacy" from the perspective of the European Union's Data Protection Directive
  • Leading data protection lawyers from Germany, Italy, the UK and the USA
  • Company experience from the Boots Company, Co-operative Bank's smile Internet bank, DoubleClick Europe, Hewlett Packard, HFC Bank, the London Clinic, One 2 One, Philip Morris International and Zero Knowledge Systems
  • UK public sector experience from the head of the Home Office's Data Protection and Freedom of Information Unit, the Criminal Records Bureau, Bradford City Council, Bracknell Forest Borough Council, the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral, and the West Yorkshire Police.
