Next Event - 8th November 2018 - Madejski Football Stadium, Reading

Gartner predicts that by the end of 2018 more than 50 per cent of companies will still not be in full compliance with its requirements despite maybe thinking they are. To avoid being one of those at risk of violating the impending legislation, organisations need to identify and address the gaps in their defences and their potential achilles heels. It is widely recognised that work to plug gaps will continue past the implementation date as benchmarking continues and real world experiences come to life. This conference will be going through the key areas to help validate your changes and support you with practical advice and steps to take.

The European Commission has also announced it aims to implement a new ePrivacy Regulation. The proposed ePrivacy Regulation will replace the 2002 ePrivacy Directive (amended 2009). This conference aims to help you on your GDPR, ePrivacy and digital marketing journey
