Data Rights in the GDPR Era:

Risks and Opportunities for Businesses


6.30pm Wednesday 18 July 2018

Linklaters LLP, 1 Silk Street, London EC2Y 8HQ


The coming into force of the GDPR and the recent Cambridge Analytica revelations have brought into focus the interplay between data and human rights. In particular, the way businesses access and use consumers’ personal data is coming under increased scrutiny from a number of quarters. While the need to protect consumers’ data rights certainly poses risks for businesses, what are the opportunities for businesses who want to get ahead of the game by building in human rights safeguards and protections? In this fascinating panel discussion we will explore these risks and opportunities in more detail.
