BIDPA Meeting Focuses on GDPR



The annual meeting of the British, Irish and Islands Data Protection Authorities is being held in Malta today with the Channel Islands in attendance. As can be expected following the recent granting of approval by the EU, the main topic of discussion will be the GDPR and how data protection authorities can embrace the inevitable changes to their existing regulatory regimes whilst promoting the enhanced rights for individuals.

This is also the final BIDPA for the outgoing UK Information Commissioner, Christopher Graham, and the Channel Islands DPAs send their best wishes to him for whatever may lie ahead.
