GDPR's Influence Ripples Around The World

01 - 03 July 2019

St John's College, Cambridge, UK

Overview

This conference brings you into close contact with privacy regulators, challenges conventional wisdom, offers great networking experience and provides excellent value for money.

The conference will address the far reaching GDPR requirements including the added value of fair and lawful processing. We cover the GDPR’s impact both in the EU and the wider world but also its impact on company operations. There will be a session on the European novel right of collective action which has already stimulated France’s CNIL into action to impose a 50 million Euros fine on Google. Other companies are also in the frame. Compensation for damages from the exercise of privacy rights is now firmly on the agenda.

Last May’s drama of the GDPR fully applying and the adoption of the EU Member States’ data protection laws may have diminished on the surface. But data controllers and data processors will always need to pay attention, as laws have been strengthened, organisations have stricter duties and individuals have stronger rights.

A unique summer-school atmosphere

This residential conference is an opportunity to enjoy a unique friendly summer school atmosphere while mingling with a group of Data Protection Commissioners, privacy managers, specialist lawyers and academics from many countries.

Held at the beautiful St John’s College, Cambridge, where participants will enjoy the excellent facilities at the conference centre. Come and experience a classic Cambridge college and walk across the Bridge of Sighs over the River Cam.
