On Thursday I will be speaking at the Third Annual ICS Data Protection Conference which will be held in the Radison Blu hotel in Dublin’s Golden Lane. This is one of the conferences I enjoy a lot as it brings in people from various different disciplines to discuss the issues of protecting the personal data of customers and employees. There will be people from data protection roles, legal, business, information security, IT and many others. I find it can lead to many an interesting conversation as people get to learn, not only from the excellent speaker line up, but from networking with others as to how best to address data protection issues in their organisation.
With the introduction of the Data Protection Commissioner’s Data Security Breach Code of Practise ensuring the appropriate steps are taken to protect personal data entrusted to an organisation is even more important. I will be presenting on “Taking a Practical Approach to Securing Your Organisation”.
There are still places available, so if you have not registered by now then you should go the ICS website and do so. If you do attend the conference do drop over and say hello.
