This issue of our newsletter focuses on the Lexing GDPR conference that was organized last June in Milan.

On 15 June 2017, the Lexing® network members held their 6th annual  conference in Milan (Italy) dedicated to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

This was the opportunity to review the stakes of the GDPR, less than a year from its entering into application, as it will drastically change the whole digital world and impact directly on any public or private organisation, independently from it being EU-based or not. The network members used that forum to each give a unique insight into the challenges and opportunities raised by the GDPR based on the specificities of their respective country. They had the honour to share their views with special guests and speakers invited to attend the conference (members of the data protection authorities, judges, in-house counsels of large multinational corporations).

The GDPR will come into force on 25 May 2018. The countdown is on: D-230!

Come and join us at our next Lexing conference, which will take place in Paris (France) in June 2018. Save the date!

This issue brings together a selection of brief articles summarizing some of the presentations given at the conference.
