New Conference Format
Co-designed with speakers, delegates and suppliers, we've created a fully interactive approach that will enable delegates to engage more, share examples of success and to develop relationships and partnerships with colleagues from the public sector to understand how to ensure data protection becomes business as usual, building public trust and avoiding large fines.
Key Note Speakers & Case Study Presentations
Throughout the course of the day, delegates will hear a number of interactive presentations which showcase examples of success. The aim of the case study presentations is to demonstrate what is possible and to identify transferable benefits that can be applied in your organisation.
Shared learning after the first few months, what to expect next? – Interactive Panel Session:
An interactive, energetic session sharing experience following the May 2018 deadline, it’s not going to have been plain sailing for everyone, sharing these experiences and learnings across the public sector will be vital to ensure data protection requirements are continued to be met. Our panellists have been at the heart of these projects and will share key insights into how they achieved their objectives, how this can be replicated and what mistakes to avoid.
Themed Panel Sessions:
An opportunity for delegates to have focused discussion on specific areas of data protection. Our themed interactive panel sessions give delegates a chance to break into smaller groups to share ideas, learn from colleagues and to overcome challenges.
Panel Sessions will cover:
- Understanding the new relationship between data controllers and data processors.
- Accountability and Evidencing. The role of the CISO and DPO in ensuring the organisations compliance.
- How will cyber criminals leverage data protection regulation to their advantage? Taking a proactive approach to reduce risk.
Knowledge Exchange Workshops
Delegates will be working in 3 groups discussing a specific data protection challenge, each group will have a facilitator who will spark the discussion and stimulate the exchange of ideas. The challenges being addressed will be selected from pre-event input from delegates so this is your chance to get a wide range of thoughts and opinions on specific issues you are looking to solve. You’ll have the chance to engage with peers from across the country, exchanging ideas in a setting that encourages interaction.
ICO Myth Busting Session
A special session specifically for the exhibitors at the conference. Whilst our delegates are in the knowledge exchange workshops, the ICO will be running an interactive session in the exhibition area for our sponsors, providing answers to key challenges that the private sector are facing and giving a detailed explanation of the latest data protection regulations and how best to meet these requirements.
Staying compliant, strategic planning that positions Data Protection as an ongoing priority - Interactive Panel Session
A key session for delegates as the summary points from this session will be used to create a post event action plan which will be provided to you following the event. Taking on board some of the key challenges and learnings highlighted throughout the day, this session will give you a chance to develop your existing strategy to continue to remain compliant.
