The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 both came into enforcement on the 25th May 2018 and businesses are having to adapt and evolve within a new set of parameters.
Businesses that don't adapt run the risk of falling foul to fines and reputational damage, and will most certainly fall behind those who are adapting.
Complying with new regulations is never easy, it is often complex and can drain resources and consume the time of key employees and teams. However, once implemented it opens up new opportunities and removes the dread of non-compliance.
The Data Protection World Forum (DPWF) has naturally evolved from the GDPR Summit Series which focussed specifically on the European General Data Protection Regulation which saw over 3,000 delegates attending from across 20 countries. The DPWF will provide a broader focus across the data protection and privacy space amidst the progressive tightening of global data protection laws.
