Privacy Crisis Ahead? Investing enough in data protection to strengthen and defend your reputation

03 - 05 July 2006

St. John's College, Cambridge, UK


A PRIVACY CRISIS could strike you at any time


Conference programme

In the last year, several leading companies and public sector bodies have found they are hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons. One way or another, someone had accessed or stolen personal information from their systems.

A crisis is not just a matter of the sanctions the privacy regulators can impose. It’s also a matter of your reputation. In order to tackle this problem appropriately, you need to understand the risks and assess proportionate solutions. By attending this conference you will learn from the problems experienced by leading organisations around the world and find out what they have done to overcome them.

You will also meet Data Protection Commissioners and their senior staff from the UK, Germany, Spain, Hong Kong and France. They attend because they want to engage in a dialogue. You have to be there to learn how they are likely to respond when an organisation can show that it has made an intelligent and purposeful effort to comply with their national laws. 

See the programme for details of sessions on customer and employee data, outsourcing, financial services, children’s issues, Binding Corporate Rules, whistle blowing lines, works councils, FoI, information sharing to combat crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour... and much, much more.

By attending this conference, you will be sure that before you hit a privacy crisis, you will know what other leading organisations are doing, and what their lawyers are recommending. You will then be able to construct an action plan knowing that you have invested enough in data protection to strengthen and defend your reputation. This Privacy Laws & Business 19th Annual International Conference will provide you with both business strategies and good practice models which you can adapt in your organisation.
