TrustArc at European Data Protection Summit

May 30, 2019

Data Protection World Forum will launch a new event for 2019, The European Data Protection Summit & Dinner which takes place next week on 3rd June, 2019 at a newly launched state-of-the-art event suite at 133 Houndsditch, London. This one-day event is designed to tackle the latest issues, challenges and developments that data protection, privacy and security professionals are facing in 2019. In the evening the summit will transform into an evening-dinner where attendees will be able to enjoy a drinks reception, three-course meal, networking and entertainment. The European Data Protection Summit & Dinner will bring together an international line-up of expert speakers exploring the latest insights and findings in data protection, governance and security.

During the European Data Protection Summit, TrustArc Senior Privacy Consultant Ralph O’Brien will be speaking on “What Data Are You Collecting, How Is It Stored And Used?” This session will explore the dangers of all parts of the data journey in the GDPR era. A business that collects data – whether those data come from EU-based employees, clients or customers – must comply with the GDPR, even if that business is located outside the EU. Ensuring data collection is consent-based is only a fraction of the challenge – secure storage and compliant handling of those data can represent something of a legislative minefield, especially if third-parties are involved. Ralph’s session will take place within the Synergy track on June 3rd at 09:40.
