The conference is spread over an afternoon and the following day to provide a social dimension in the form of a conference dinner. The senior staff of the Data Protection Commission and other speakers have been invited.

Ireland has become an increasingly attractive location for companies based outside the European Economic Area, such as Facebook, Microsoft and Apple, to site their European headquarters. Since the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union, Ireland’s combination of educated work force, favourable tax regime and English speaking population has had the additional attraction of soon becoming the major English speaking EU Member State.

Recognising this position and noting that Ireland has been the forum for significant collective action complaints under Art. 80 of the EU’s Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the government has significantly increased the budget and staff allocation to the Data Protection Commission to more effectively carry out its supervisory mission.

As a result, Ireland’s Data Protection Commission is now increasingly in demand as a lead authority in the EU’s One Stop Shop and decisions of Helen Dixon, Commissioner for Data Protection carry increasing weight in the EU context.

It is against this background that Privacy Laws & Business in association with leading law firm, McCannFitzGerald, has organised a conference, Integrating Ireland’s Data Protection Law into everyday Business taking place in Dublin on 8 and 9 May.
