Now that GDPR has come into effect and the dust is starting to clear, what is next for life science manufacturers? Most organisations have a plan that they are executing. They have assessed the risks, taken advice and put in place procedures that address at least some of the changes. However there are ongoing changes required as companies adjust their policies and put them into practice. There is no definitive understanding on how the new rules will be policed and enforced by regulators. Incorporating these measures into the business and being prepared for the unknown remains heavily with legal, compliance and information security and technology teams.

CBI/UBM’s GDPR Forum for Life Sciences is a one-day summit dedicated to providing legal, compliance and IS/IT executive teams with best practices based on real-world examples, insights from data protection thought-leaders and opportunities for benchmarking across the industry.

Key Explorations and Special Features:

  • Examine the role and responsibilities of data processors and controllers under GDPR in terms of data breaches and resulting liabilities
  • Strengthen data protection impact assessments for enhanced risk planning
  • Evaluate how the “right to erasure” impacts records already disclosed in EFPIA transparency reports
  • Benchmark with data privacy team leaders to see how they are becoming GDPR-compliant while also anticipating the needs of the organisation
