Preparing For GDPR: Using Data Responsibly?

Join Centre for Innovation The Hague this FutureFriday+ to learn all about the new EU law on personal data protection.

On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (#GDPR) will come into force to regulate and protect EU citizen’s personal data. This will have consequences for all organisations who deal with this kind of data… but how can they prepare for it? Join us and our guests Stuart Campo (Harvard Humanitarian Initiative), Judith Tarmond (T&R Advocaten) and Maaike Blom (Data4Development) to learn more about this new law and the importance of using data in a responsible manner.
