1 year after the GDPR was adopted, Fieldfisher is organising a Data Protection conference in Brussels, dedicated to the GDPR and its implementation.

Why attend? Because the biggest challenge of this regulation might be the implementation of the GDPR in practice. Education in data protection and privacy is still ongoing and very much needed. More and more questions are being raised everyday around the implementation, where and how to start it, and how to ensure compliance before the D-date of 25th May 2018.

If you haven’t started yet, this will be the survival kit you need.
