This event takes place between 12:30 -13:30.
In May 2018, the UK’s Data Protection Act will be replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Although the new law originates from the European Union, the UK government has stated that it will continue to apply in the UK after the country leaves the EU.
This online session will explain the new approach taken by the GDPR (and the proposed ePrivacy Regulation), the main areas of difference, and the changes it will require to how organisations think about their processing of personal data.
Who should attend
Staff responsible for processes or systems that handle personal data, or involved in their organisation’s plans for implementing the GDPR.
The online briefing is free to attend, and is open to anyone from Jisc member institutions1. We reserve the right to limit the number of bookings from the same institution.
