Join us at Canada House, the home of the High Commission of Canada in the UK (the oldest diplomatic mission for Canada established in 1880), for a breakfast event exploring the latest privacy issues impacting the financial services sector. We are delighted to be hosted by the Deputy High Commissioner, Sarah Fountain Smith, who will open the event. We are also pleased to welcome Elizabeth Denham, UK ICO, who will be presenting a keynote sharing her thoughts with the audience on privacy post the GDPR, and looking ahead to a post-Brexit environment of privacy adequacy or otherwise, followed by a panel discussion with high profile privacy professionals from a range of Canadian organisations operating in the UK, followed by an opportunity for Q&A.

This is sure to be an interesting and topical event on key issues in privacy which impact all of us, both professionally and personally, in a truly stunning location.
