The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into force in May 2018 in Jersey and Guernsey. It will update data protection rights for the internet and digital age, controlling how governments and businesses process individuals’ information.
It will also mean that businesses don’t face significantly different compliance rules if they are conducting business locally and across the European Union (EU).
Emma Martins, who is the Information Commissioner in Jersey (with responsibility for regulating data protection and freedom of information legislation) and Data Protection Commissioner in Guernsey, will be discussing how Jersey can reap major economic benefits from the new regulation at IoD Jersey’s Lunch Club on Tuesday 25 April.
The event, which is open to members and non-members, will take place at the Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa, with networking drinks from midday and lunch from 12.30pm until 2pm.
