Public-Sector-Data-GDPR-Summit-Logo_Date-RGB.pngThe first annual Public Sector Data & GDPR Summit, taking place on 13th March 2018, will analyse and evaluate the implementation, innovations and opportunities that GDPR, in conjunction with the UK’s new Data Protection Bill, presents public services. 

The summit will ignite debate and discussions on citizen’s rights, interdepartmental data sharing, and security, improving end-user experience and protection in the post GDPR digital age. 

On the day over 240 central government department heads and leaders from local government, along with NHS innovators and tech giants, will come together to uncover the impact of GDPR and what data compliance looks like in a post-Brexit UK. 

Celerity’s data experts will be delivering a one hour seminar focussing on Celerity Custodian Data Protection & GDPR offering together with the IBM Spectrum portfolio. 

Confirmed speakers include:- 

The Baroness Neville-Rolfe DBE CMG, Member European Union Committee, Former Minister of State BEIS, Parliamentary Under-Secretary

Jonathan Bamford, Head of Parliament & Government Affairs, Information Commissioners Office

Andrew Powell, Head of Privacy, Bank of England

Jon Baines, Data Protection Officer, Network Rail

Julian David, CEO, techUK

Dan Taylor, Head of Security, Data Security Centre, NHS Digital
