Chamber Critical Briefing: GDPR

Chamber Critical Briefing: GDPR : Thursday 4 May


In just over 12 months, The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force, replacing current legislation. It will affect every business in Jersey, from a single trades person to a multi-jurisdictional finance organisation. Any business of any size which holds data about individuals will be subject to GDPR legislation from May 2018, and fines for non-compliance could be very costly. The time to start preparations is NOW.

Due to overwhelming demand, The Jersey Chamber of Commerce are holding a second half-day briefing event designed to provide attendees with an essential overview of GDPR direct from those with expertise in this area. 

Our first event sold out within 72 hours, and demand is expected to be high again. Please book soon to avoid disappointment. At the event, we will hear from:

Emma Martins, Information Commissioner Jersey/Data Protection Commissioner Guernsey, will open the event, outlining what GDPR involves and the critical timeline between now and May 2018 when it will come into effect.

Phil Ruelle, Chief Digital Officer at BDO Ltd, will then discuss the key areas where businesses must act to ensure compliance.  He will seek to provide guests with examples of where current processes may not conform to the new rules and how they might be improved.

Richard Sheldon, Counsel, Dispute Resolution Team, Appleby, will join our keynote speakers for a panel discussion and Q&A session.  Richard will provide an overview of GDPR for business from a legal standpoint.

Spaces are limited and we expect demand to be high so we kindly advise you to book tickets soon to avoid missing out.
