The impact of GDPR in higher education

JUNE 22ND 2017 > 09AM TO 4PM > IMPERIAL COLLEGE LONDON

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in May 2018 and will introduce a regulatory framework of new data protection rights for EU citizens.

This change in privacy law will have a huge impact in higher education. Non-compliant universities could be fined as much as €20 million or 4% of global annual turnover. Institutions need to act now to ensure they are compliant by the time the regulation is introduced.

This one-day conference is tailored towards higher education professionals. Experts from HE, privacy law and technology will explain how institutions need to change their data policy and will provide examples of best practice.
