Compliance Briefing London will take place this year at County Hall London on 12 October 2017. Forming part of a series of conferences on the hottest regulatory topics that are affecting the iGaming industry, this briefing will tackle two of the most pressing issues, the new European Union General Data Protection Regulations and the EU’s Fourth AML Directive which is designed to combat money laundering.

Ahead of the conference, Compliance Briefing London has released a six step introductory guide for GDPR compliance as more and more businesses are becoming aware of the new regulations and the need to comply with them. The guidance is designed to help businesses through many of the contradictory ideas and statements about the new General Data Protection Regulations and help them comply by the May 25 deadline.

Steps that are covered in the new guide include:

  • The legal framework of GDPR and how to conduct an audit to identify how GDPR will affect your business
  • Creating a data register that is used to document the process you intend to follow to become compliant with GDPR.
  • How to classify data according to its type and how it needs to be treated to ensure compliance with the new regulations.
  • Identifying the top GDPR priorities. What are the tasks that need to be dealt with first to protect those most at risk of a data breach?
  • Looking at additional and supplementary GDPR risks whilst still ensuring the data register is kept up-to-date.
  • The danger of unforeseen consequences and ensuring timely reviews are done in the future.

As Jaime Debono, Managing Director of conference organisers the iGaming academy, explained: “There are a lot of unknowns out there with regards to GDPR at the moment and we have attempted to address some of them with our 6 step guide. All businesses, whatever their size, must be GDPR compliant. This guide’s aim is to cut through the noise and provide a basic framework on which to build your GDPR compliance strategy.

“Of course, this is only a basic guide and readers will be able to learn far more on how to action the plan by attending our full conference at County Hall, London on 12th October. However in the meantime, our publication will help them set out the path they intend to take.”

  • Christina Thakor-Rankin – Principal Consultant at 1710 Gaming Ltd
