Everything you need to know from practical tips to avoiding pitfalls!
GDPR is a board room issue. Rarely a week goes by without a front page story involving the alleged misuse or novel use of personal data.
The 25 May 2018 deadline for companies to bring themselves into compliance with the new law has now passed, but very few companies have brought themselves into line. Their failure to do so puts them at risk of dire reputational and regulatory consequences.
GDPR is having a significant impact on companies across the globe. Companies based in the Middle East who have EU operations, or simply promote their goods and services to individuals in Europe, need to make sure they are compliant.
This seminar will give an overview of the GDPR and provide the latest thinking on how companies should practically get themselves ready.
This LexisNexis event will be held in collaboration with DIFC Academy of Law and DWF LLP.
