Senior Women’s Corporate Counsel Conference

23 October 2017

Emma Gallacher, Lawyer in our Legal Services team will be travelling to Denver to join the Senior Women’s Corporate Counsel (SWCC) Conference taking place 3-5 November 2017.

Data protection is a business critical topic. Having a comprehensive understanding of the rules is becoming increasingly important. The dramatic increases in the sharing and processing of personal data, and other changes in the international privacy landscape, mean that existing data and privacy laws are no longer fit for purpose. The European Union’s remedy is the new General Data Protection Regulation, which will be implemented in May 2018. The increased territorial reach of this regulation means that it will be essential for companies all over the world to ensure that they are up to date and compliant with the new rules.

If you will be attending the SWCC conference and would like to arrange some time to meet with Emma, or would like to know more about data protection and what the new laws mean for your business, please get in touch.
