The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into effect in May 2018.
The implementation of GDPR will fundamentally change the relationship between how your organisation collects, processes, stores and shares its personal data of your staff and students.
Our event is designed to offer our members practical advice around the impact of these changes and how to plan and implement changes across your organisation. Our experts will be on hand to answer your questions throughout the day.
We'll be welcoming a variety of speakers and GDPR specialists from further education colleges and higher education institutions. Full programme to be announced.
