Join us on 22 June to learn what universities must do to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in May 2018 and will introduce a regulatory framework of new data protection rights for EU citizens.
This change in privacy law will have a huge impact in higher education. Non-compliant universities could be fined as much as €20 million or 4% of global annual turnover. Institutions need to act now to ensure they are compliant by the time the regulation is introduced.
Our conference is a London EdTech Week co-chair event and is tailored towards higher education professionals. Experts from HE, privacy law and technology will explain how institutions need to change their data policy and will provide best practice examples.
Registration is free for FULL FABRIC clients and London EdTech Week delegates.
When: Thursday 22 June from 9am to 4pm
Where: Imperial College London, 170 Queen’s Gate, Kensington, London SW7 5HF
