2018 will be a landmark year for data protection and privacy

In an increasingly digital economy the issue of data protection and privacy is becoming ever more important.

2018 has seen the biggest change in data protection and privacy for two decades and it's having a global impact on organisations of all sizes.

The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on May 25 of this year and it impacts nearly every organisation.

Risk is everyone’s business and C-suite members and senior-level IT professionals have to stay informed about the latest regulatory and security issues.

The Keynote Conference sponsored by OneTrust at Data Protection World Forum will attract aspirational leaders looking for inspiration and actionable strategic advice.

Data protection starts at the top, it's imperative that those who are leading the organisation instill a positive data culture throughout the business. Those who fail to instill a positive data culture risk falling foul of regulations, resulting in sudden damage to a positive reputation which could have taken years to build. 

Delivering the sessions and panel discussions over the two-days will be those who are leading the new era of data protection and privacy. The Keynote Conference sponsored by OneTrust will play host to the world's foremost data protection and privacy experts as they deliver in-depth, interactive and engaging presentations.


The Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Seminar at the Data Protection World Forum will focus on the issues that are at the top of the agenda for compliance professionals from financial institutions.

2018 has been a landmark year of regulatory change, with organisations having to address major new regulations, such as GDPR and MiFID II.

Taking place 6 months after the enforcement date of GDPR and 10 months after the implementation of MiFID II the GRC Seminar at Data Protection World Forum will examine the most pressing regulatory changes and risks facing the financial services industry. 


The Public Sector Seminar at the Data Protection World Forum will focus on the issues that are at the top of the agenda for compliance professionals in the public sector.

Due to the wide reaching nature of the public sector there is a natural requirement for services and enterprises to hold large amounts of data for a sustained period of time. 

Much of the data collected in the public sector falls into the category of sensitive data, which carries a different set of even more stringent regulatory rules and restrictions. 

Understanding how the data protection and privacy landscape is evolving is imperative to any public sector professional who deals with the compliance of data and privacy.
