29 March 2018: GDPR... Ready, Set, Go!


Join the ARA London Region Committee for a free, all day information session about GDPR, which (as you probably already know) comes in to force May 2018. The session will consist of keynote talks by Kevin Mulley, Senior Advisor (20 year rule and NHS) at TNA, and Susan Healey, Information Policy Consultant and Data Protection Officer, TNA. There will also be several professionals sharing their experiences of preparing for GDPR, including Sarah Palmer-Edwards, Corporate Information & Knowledge Manager at the London Borough of Hackney, and Pamela Forde, Archives Manager at Royal College of Physicians. Towards the end of the session, there will be a panel discussion which will give delegates the opportunity to ask their own questions about GDPR. We will finish with the brief Spring Meeting of ARA London Region.
