The Senior Technology Leaders Meet Up is a group for meeting CIOs, CDOs, CTOs, VPs of Engineering and the like meeting monthly around Europe.
On the 5th July the group met up again in Dublin to discuss the practical strategies for GDPR preparation.
Sarah-Jane Higgins, Senior Privacy Manager at Western Union and John Curran CTO of IntrinsicAware shared their experience, knowledge and advice with the audience.
The speakers gave the inside track on GDPR and some practical steps on how you can stay one step ahead and the consequences of getting the strategy wrong.
What is the GDPR and why should I care?
GDPR is shorthand for the new European General Data Protection Regulations. Any organisation which handles EU citizen’s personal data or does any marketing by email or phone needs to be ready to comply by 25th May 2018.
Our next event on GDPR is in Manchester on Wednesday 13th September starting at 6pm
