Time is almost up! On the 25th of May the new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will come into effect. No matter if your daily business focuses on Marketing, Sales, HR or Finances – to meet the requirements on time you need to hurry. There will be fines up to 20 Millions Euros respectively 2 to 4 percent of the yearly turnover.

In this event, we want to give the audience a deep dive into how the GDPR can be a threat but also what measures need to be taken to fulfill the demands on time. It is late, but not too late.

We will bring together experts from the legal as well as from the IT side. By combining speakers from corporates and startups, we want to showcase the challenges that come with the new regulation and how collaboration and exchange across industries and sectors can be inspiring, guiding and valuable.

The event will be held in English.
