Information Technology Matters

10 Jul 2019
Lloyd's Library , London

The IoD has partnered with Insurance Technology Forums (ITF) to run the Information Technology Matters - GDPR's first year: the lull before the 2019 storm event. 

The event will review GDPR’s first year which concentrated on compliance, and – more importantly – discuss the year ahead, which the Information Commissioner has forewarned will be a ‘year of enforcement’. Regardless of the UK’s split from the EU, data privacy and protection will remain a top priority for the insurance industry as legislation similar to GDPR already exists in Canada, while other markets such as Brazil and Singapore are well advanced in development and it’s only a matter of time before consumer pressure demands similar legislation throughout the US.

The event is taking place at:
Lloyd's Old Library
Lloyd's of London
One Lime Street
