With the 25 May 2018 deadline quickly approaching it has never been more critical for life sciences organisations to understand the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its implications on current operations and policies. Data privacy, legal, compliance and information technology teams are faced with the considerable challenge of incorporating these measures into business, research and clinical trial procedures.

The Life Sciences GDPR Bootcamp is a one-day summit dedicated to providing these cross-functional teams with a comprehensive overview of the regulation, including insights from data protection thought-leaders and a field guide to compliance.
