On Thursday 21 September (13:00 - 14:30), techUK will be holding a briefing session focusing on the implications of GDPR on the Cloud Computing, Big Data, Data Analytics and AI industry.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in the UK and across Europe on 25 May 2018 and represents the most significant reform of data protection laws for twenty years. The implementation of GDPR will have implications for organisations across all sectors that collect and process personal data. Given that Big Data, Data Analytics, AI and Cloud computing companies generate, access, process, manage, store and share vast quantities of data in their daily operations, the introduction of the GDPR will undoubtedly be an incredibly important development.
For example the GDPR introduces new rights for citizens and considerable new obligations on both data controllers and processors. The focus on accountability and transparency, which are both running themes throughout the regulation, aims to provide citizens with far greater control over how their personal information is collected, used and processed. The introduction of significant fines, standing at up to 4 per cent of annual turnover or 20 million euros, highlight how important it is that all organisations are ready to comply with GDPR.
With less than a year to go until the GDPR applies in the UK, this session will discuss the potential impact on those providing cloud, big data and AI services and highlight the key aspects of the GDPR that members need to be aware and provide advice and key tips on how to start preparing for the implementation.
Speakers at the session will include:
- Mark Bailey, Partner, Charles Russell Speechlys LLP
- Nicky Stewart, Commercial Director, UKCloud Ltd
- Kindy Flyvholm, Programme Manager, Teradata UK Ltd
- Brijesh Prabhakar, AVP & Head of Assurance Services, Larsen & Toubro Infotech Ltd
