Welcome to techUK’s Data Protection Campaign Week!

As you will no doubt be aware, GDPR takes effect this Friday. This marks the most significant reform of data protection laws in over twenty years and has been about five years in the making.

The new laws dramatically change the way data protection laws operate in the UK and the EU, and will significantly increase the rights of data subjects and the responsibilities of data controllers and processors.

To mark this moment, this week is techUK’s Data Protection Campaign Week. Throughout the week in the run up to GDPR-day itself, techUK will publish blogs and articles, bringing news, views and insights from techUK staff, our members, stakeholders and thought leaders exploring how the new data protection rules will impact different areas of the economy and society. During the week we will focus on the following themes:

  • Monday - Data Protection and the Public Sector
  • Tuesday - Data Protection and Business
  • Wednesday - Data Flows and Trade
  • Thursday - Data Protection and New Technologies
  • Friday - Importance of building a culture of trust and confidence

We encourage you to get involved in Data Protection week and keep an eye on the techUK twitter, and join the conversation by using the hashtag #techUKGDPR.

For more information please get in touch with Jeremy Lilley or Rebecca Francis.
