For the first time ever, the UK and every other European Union country are changing their data protection laws at the same time. All of us processing name-linked data in any format must understand the legal and management issues, find solutions and take appropriate action. That is what the Privacy Laws & Business 12th Annual Conference is all about; giving you a firm basis for developing a data protection compliance programme.
Many of our conference participants come back every year because they find that this conference gives them a well balanced programme finely tuned to their needs. The programme covers not only the present but also looks to the issues which will demand your attention in the future. The conference will provide you with:

  • the most experienced speakers including several senior staff from the UK's Office of the Data Protection Registrar and their equivalents from Australia, Canada, the Netherlands and New Zealand; data protection compliance managers from business, the public sector and a charity; and experienced specialised lawyers
  • optimum time and space to network not only with colleagues in other organisations but also with staff from Data Protection Authorities from several countries who are eager to discuss issues informally with you
  • a most attractive venue, in the quiet riverside setting of the idyllic St. John's College, Cambridge
  • outstanding value for money for this 3 day residential conference, also available for 1 or 2 days

Innovations this year include:

  • several sessions of detailed coverage of the new UK law including its human rights basis, authoritative guidance on interpreting the secondary legislation, and new approaches to enforcement
  • a unique insight into the decision-making process at European level regarding both international transfers and sectoral codes
  • separate sessions on human resources, direct marketing and auditing including not only data protection but also related legislation
  • more parallel sessions, some in a basic training track, so that everyone can choose their options according to their own priorities and experience
