IoD & McCann FitzGerald Partnership Event - GDPR - What Directors Need to Know

The IoD and McCann FitzGerald have partnered to bring IoD members the most relevant and applicable information in respect of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), due to come into effect in May 2018.

This regulation overhauls and expands the scope of EU data protection law. Companies that process the data of EU residents, must comply with the new requirements or risk incurring substantial financial penalties and other negative consequences.  

This event, entitled, 'GDPR - What Directors Need to Know' and hosted by McCann FitzGerald, will equip attendees with insight from the experts and advice on GDPR compliance. The presenters from McCann FitzGerald will cover a number of topics at the event, including:

  • An overview of the new data protection regime.
  • Potential consequences of non-compliance.
  • Key obligations and their operational impact.
  • Preparing for the GDPR.
  • Role of the DPO and interaction with board of directors.


Have you started to revise your policies and operational procedures in order to comply with the upcoming regulation?  Is it something you are planning to do in near the future?   

If so, we would be delighted if you would join us at this event in Dublin, where you can learn tips from the experts and meet like-minded directors.
