Legislation updates for 2018


IMRG, in conjunction with Bond Dickinson, would like to invite you to the next Legal Forum.

The rising prevalence of the internet into our customer lives means that our responsibilities for processing their data are increasing. This event will discuss the latest developments on the road to GDPR implementation, including a view on recently issued ICO and EU guidance.

In addition, we will be looking at the increasing complexity that businesses faces as customers start to use new technologies and the pace of change is accelerating.

Ted Claypoole, a partner at Bond Dickinson's US alliance firm, Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, is travelling from the US to discuss emerging technologies, such as internet of things (IOT), payment technology, marketing tools and the implications that this may have on cyber security, data protection and the risk to brands if something goes wrong.

This event is aimed at in-house retail lawyers, giving them insight in to developments that may be impacting their business in the not-to-distant future.

We look forward to welcoming you to the event.

We ask attendees to arrive for 10.00am for a prompt 10.30am start.
