The first annual Public Sector Data & GDPR Summit
GovNet communications, organisers of the Cyber Security Summit, have announced the launch of a new event, the Public Sector Data & GDPR Summit.
The first annual Public Sector Data & GDPR Summit will take place on 16th March 2018 at the Victoria Park Plaza, London and will bring together over 250 central government department heads and leaders from local government, along NHS innovators and tech giants. The event will engage, inform and prepare public sector leaders by delivering up-to-date analysis and evaluation of the impact, opportunities and innovations of GDPR.
A recent survey from the ICO shows that the public sector organisations have significant preparations to make before the May 2018 implementation date of GDPR in order to be compliant with the new rules and regulations.
The government is also currently working on a Data Protection Bill, which is currently at committee stage (view bill progression here), that aims to repeal and replace the UK’s existing data protection laws to keep them up to date for the digital age in which ever increasing amounts of personal data are being processed. It sets new standards for protecting personal data, in accordance with GDPR, giving people more control over use of their data in a post Brexit UK.
Jonathan Carter, Head of Marketing of GovNet Events said, “The timing for this event is perfect, as we can see from the ICO research the some areas of the public sector that have a number of preparations to make before they are completely compliant with the legislation, and this event will help them gain the knowledge and insight they need. As well as compliance there are a number of opportunities for innovation and transformation within the sector on how data can be processed and used that we really want to shine a light on.”
The Public Sector Data & GDPR Summit will bring together senior leadership from local government, central government and the NHS. Those who are involved in and responsible for the processing data on any level to deliver public services.
The Public Sector Data & GDPR Summit will take place on 13th March 2018 at the Victoria Park Plaza, London. £100 discount is available on new public sector bookings bookings by using offer code MK7TAV2 before 30th November 2017. Click here to book your place today.
