Carey Olsen cyber security conference to focus on EU General Data Protection Regulation

Posted: 27/02/2017

Carey Olsen is hosting a half-day conference focusing on the impact of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on Guernsey businesses.

The free-to-attend conference will include presentations from government bodies and industry authorities in the sector.

The GDPR, which comes into effect from 25 May 2018, introduces new accountability obligations, stronger rights for individuals over their personal data and restrictions on international data flows.  

Similar regulations will be introduced in Guernsey and will affect how all local businesses handle personal data.

Speakers will include the Data Protection Commissioner and representatives from the Guernsey Financial Services Commission, the States of Guernsey, C5 Alliance, the Financial Investigation Unit and lawyers from Carey Olsen.  They will look at the latest developments in the legislation, the challenges and how companies should prepare for the new regime.

The conference takes place on Thursday 6 April at St Pierre Park Hotel from 8am until 12.30pm.
