    Presentation Title: “The GDPR – what you need to know, and how to get ready”

    Presentation Synopsis: “With the launch date for the General DP Regulation (GDPR) only 16 months away, organisations are beginning to plan their transition to the new legislation.

    The Regulation will have considerable implications for any organisation processing the personal data of EU citizens, no matter where in the world the processing takes place.

    In particular, organisations in the Health Sector will need to become familiar with the impending changes to their management of diagnostic, research and health care data.

    This brief overview takes account of the key changes and looks at a possible road-map by which organisations can prepare, in order to get their house in order on time!”
