The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years.  With GDPR coming into effect in early 2018 it is essential that businesses of all sizes understand what will be required of them to stay on the right side of the laws.  This session will cover an overview of GDPR including looking at the challenges for existing and future IT systems along with the steps every organisation should be looking at now to make sure that they are ready for next year.
