With the flow of data being increasingly difficult to monitor, and fines in the region of €35million being dished out under GDPR for employee monitoring and IT security failings, there are unlikely to be more expensive mistakes you could make.

As in-house counsel you're expected to lead on your corporate strategy to address key risk issues. So we decided to create a series of relevant roundtable discussions to address the topics which keep you up at night and to help you develop real-life solutions, starting with data leaks.
