Preparing for the Impact of ePrivacy Regulations

The ePrivacy Conference, taking place on Thursday 4th October 2018, will bring together senior professionals from the public sector to discuss how can public sector organisations bring data protection & privacy to the forefront of the workplace.

What is the ePrivacy Conference?

News about GDPR is rightfully dominating the headlines, but there are other vital changes on the horizon for the digital economy that must not be ignored including the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR).

As the United Kingdom is a global leader in the data economy, accounting for 11.5 per cent of global cross-border flows, it is vital that public sector organisations are well informed and prepared as the future of data protection and privacy is set to be drastically changed.

The ePrivacy conference will bring together the Central & Local Government, the NHS and the wider public sector to hear from policy makers and senior government officials on topics such as:

ePrivacy reforms
Post GDPR challenges
International data transfers
Risk of cloud-enabled products
Post-Brexit data protection
Privacy Shield Framework
Website and app security
Data Privacy Impact Assessments (DPIAs)
and many more!

Technology vs Data Protection

Since the dawn of modern technology in 1970 information technology has rapidly spread to all corners of our lives and is ever present. With this rapid development the relevance of protecting our personal data hasn’t always followed suit. Today safeguarding personal data has never been so important and at the forefront of the public’s mind.


The new E-privacy Directive, to be adopted between June and July 2018, complements the existing data protection regime and sets out more-specific privacy rights on electronic communications. It recognises that widespread public access to digital mobile networks and the internet opens up new possibilities for organisations and users, but also new risks to their privacy. As the UK’s public sector relies on processing communications content and holds everything from tax records to biometric data, it is crucial that organisations act now to ensure they are in line with the new legislation.

Rapporteur for the ePrivacy Regulation, European Parliament

This topic will definitely be of interest for the whole public sector, especially for Local Government since they are providing services directly to the public.

Business Consultant Information Governance Operations, Essex City Council

Would like to hear about policy updates on ePrivacy and hear best practice case studies on GDPR and ePrivacy implementation in the public sector. Would also like to gain info on Freedom of Information requests and subject access requests.

Head of Knowledge and Information Management, DIFD

Would like to hear more about the Data Protection Bill/Act 2017-19 and to hear about eProvacy regulation. What we should do? I would like to see more on the actual solutions. It would be good to hear about sharing of personal and communications data between public and private sector.

Head of Legal Services, Dartford Borough Council

ePrivacy will be a very hot topic after GDPR's deadline comes into force. It would be really good to hear how this is addressed by different organisations across the public sector, especially from Central Government, NHS and Local Government.

Partner, Adapt Consulting

This topic will be very important in the next few months and I am keen to learn more about it. It would be good to have experts covering links between GDPR and ePrivacy regulation.
