UK News

Epiq logoEpiq, a leading global provider of integrated technology solutions and services for the legal profession, today announced that it will host a workshop covering the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) at The Lawyer’s Managing Risk and Litigation event in London on 5 December.

Martin Bonney, senior director, and Deborah Blaxell, senior consultant, international consulting services, will present a roundtable entitled, “GDPR Applies in the Next 6 Months: It’s Time to Benchmark your Progress Toward Compliance.” The roundtable will be presented twice on 5 December, at 11:10 and 15:50.

The roundtables will discuss:

  • Key steps toward GDPR compliance
  • Key risks to business and practical steps to address them
  • GDPR and eDiscovery: Subject access requests and cross-border transfers
  • Breach preparation and the prompt notification of the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)  
  • Moving from a mindset of compliance to a mindset of commitment to managing data sensitively and ethically

“With the introduction of the GDPR effective on 25 May 2018, and the threat of fines up to the greater of €20 million or up to 4 per cent of global revenue, the pressure on organisations to comply has never been greater,” said Bonney. “It’s imperative for legal and compliance professionals to stay ahead of this regulation, and we welcome the opportunity to facilitate discussion on this important topic.”
