GDPR preparation in the wealth and investment management community
The Wealth and Investment Management group at Charles Russell Speechlys hosted a GDPR round table breakfast discussion last week, exploring the coming General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and how the wealth and investment management community are preparing for it.
The key issues covered included:
- Data mapping
- Information notices and consent
- Data security and breaches
- Data Protection Impact Assessments
The event attracted a wide range of key decision makers at wealth and investment management businesses across the UK, all of whom shared their own unique approach towards preparing for the regulation, which comes into force on 25 May 2018.
The event featured a presentation from our own GDPR experts and we were delighted to have been accompanied by Knadel, a specialist business and technology management consultancy to the investments industry, who also shared their own experience of GDPR projects within the sector.
If your business is struggling with any of the issues outlined above, or would like more information on our event, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
