IoD & McCann FitzGerald Partnership Event - A Director’s Guide to GDPR Implementation

01 February 2018 5:00pm

As organisations move from planning to implementing their GDPR readiness programmes, it is important that directors understand the key implementation challenges being faced by business so that strategies and plans to address these challenges can be devised and executed. 

In a recent wide-ranging survey on GDPR readiness conducted by McCann FitzGerald, the areas of most concern to Irish business that were identified include:

  • Maintaining an adequate and complete inventory of personal data
  • Outsourcing implications including international transfers and data portability within and outside the EEA
  • The role of the data protection officer
  • Data protection / privacy notices and methods of consent

This event will offer practical, how-to guidelines on the main issues raised as well as provide a wider forum for discussion on the main challenges that GDPR implementation poses to organisations.

This event is open to IoD members only and places will be allocated on a first come basis. 

For all queries please email Beth O'Sullivan at eosullivan@iodireland.ie or phone 01 411 0010.


Registration will take place from 5.00pm with the event beginning at 5.15pm sharp, followed by Q&A and refreshments.

CPD: IoD events may be eligible for CPD, including Chartered Director CPD, please check with your relevant professional body.
