Walkers to host Data Protection Deputy Commissioner on 11 May 2017

Data Protection
The coming year will bring unprecedented change to Irish and European data protection law. With implementation due on 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) poses a major compliance challenge and introduces the prospect of severe financial penalties for non-compliance.

Walkers Breakfast Briefing - 11 May 2017
Walkers is hosting a data protection breakfast briefing and round table discussion to look ahead to what organisations should be doing to prepare for the implementation of the GDPR and to provide an overview of current data protection trends, issues and case studies based on the Office of Data Protection Commissioner's (ODPC) Annual Report for 2016.

Speakers
Anna Morgan, Head of Legal (Deputy Commissioner) ODPC will discuss the ODPC 2016 annual report, the new regulatory regime under GDPR and the ODPC's GDPR readiness preparations.

Eoin O'Connor (Partner & Head of Regulatory) and Shane Martin (Regulatory Compliance Director) of Walkers will give an overview of the key business impacts of the GDPR and consider the steps that companies should now take to ensure they are compliant in advance of the implementation deadline.
