The NIGF holds at least three events per year across different locations in the North of England and Scotland. These events are open to anyone working in Data Protection and IT Security and provide a forum for networking and learning more about how other organisations are implementing improvements in this area.
Events usually last half a day and are themed around a specific topic area. In addition, online webinars and networking opportunities will also take place between face to face events.
Here’s a list of our planned events. Seats are limited so if you would like to attend, sign up by clicking on the Eventbrite link (when it is available) in the event description.
In this webinar, Ibrahim Hasan (solicitor and director of Act Now Training) shares his reflections and learnings from the past 36 months. Ibrahim will discuss the first three years of GDPR implementation and learning from fines in the UK, but also more widely across Europe and consider how GDPR and the DPA 2018 has changed as a result of Brexit and what to expect during 2021 and beyond. If you are interested in attending this event, which will be held at 2pm on Thursday 21st January and are not currently a member of NIGF, please get in touch - [email protected]
