In 14 months' time, 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.

In response to numerous member requests, The Jersey Chamber of Commerce will be holding a half day briefing event designed to provide attendees with an essential overview of GDPR direct from those with expertise in this area. 

Emma Martins, Data Protection/Information Commissioner, 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 the hefty penalties your business might face if you fail to prepare in time.

Sara Johns, Partner in the Corporate and Commercial team at Ogier will join our keynote speakers for a panel discussion.  Sara will provide an overview of GDPR for business from a legal standpoint.
