About this Event

The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018. GDPR brings significantly increased financial penalties, reaching up to 4% of an organisation's global annual turnover or €20 million (whichever is the higher). In 2018 the French data regulator imposed a fine of €50 million on Google. However, fines are not the only available sanctions. European Regulators have an extensive toolkit of sanctions, including the ability to issue business-ending "stop now" orders to prevent or suspend the processing of personal data in breach of GDPR. GDPR applies to any organisation, wherever incorporated or established, operating within Europe, or offering goods or services to European data subjects. It restricts the transfer of personal data outside Europe, and includes provisions that can compel organisations to make a hard choice between breaching GDPR or breaching the laws of other jurisdictions. In this intensive Masterclass, Our speaker, Mr Malcom Dowden, Legal Director at Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP, will examine introduce and examine the key concepts and compliance requirements of GDPR, helping you to avoid financial penalties while ensuring that business-critical data flows can continue.
