New Horizons ~ New Risks

Distinguish the myths from realities

By attending this conference, you will better distinguish the myths from the realities, understand the new challenges and accompanying risks presented by privacy and data protection laws, and identify the new opportunities on the horizon. What are the implications for the way laws are interpreted and enforced by the regulators? How will you assess the impact on your company in different countries? Where is your room for manoeuvre? What does your organisation need to do to navigate your route through these challenges, conducting your business with one eye on your immediate operational needs and the other eye on the ever widening horizon?
