Uncertainty about the final shape of the new EU Data Protection Regulation does not mask one fact – they will change how every organisation has to deal with personal information and the cost base and risk factors involved. Whether through the impact of new consent requirements or the need to employ a Data Protection Officer, the eventual legislation will impose new demands that must be planned for now.

In this session, Moritz Godel explains what impact these might have, based on the London Economics report specifically commissioned by the Information Commissioner’s Office to provide an objective insight into what might be in store.
