DPO 200: Recognising data protection professionals from across Europe

The Data Protection sector has experienced widespread change of regulatory and technology developments, particularly over the last 12 months following the enforcement of GDPR. GDPR celebrates its one year anniversary tomorrow, May the 25th 2018.

The DPO 200, sponsored by OneTrust, in association with the GDPR Institut, recognises and celebrates individuals who have made significant contributions to the privacy and security sectors. The European Data Protection Summit editorial team considered several factors in compiling the list, including; social media impact, knowledge sharing, and community support.

The DPO 200 will be recognised at the European Data Protection Summit which takes place at 133 Houndsditch, London on the 3rd of June this year.

Those recognised will be invited as VIP attendees of the event, where they will be awarded their prestigious DPO 200 certificate.

The one day conference will bring together an international line-up of expert speakers who will explore the latest insights and findings in data protection, governance and security.

Speakers include:

  • Max Schrems, founder of noyb & privacy activist
  • Nicola Roviaro, Head of Data Privacy EMEA, Google
  • Emma Martins, Data Protection Commissioner, Bailwick of Guersney
  • Steve Wright, GDPR Advisor, Bank of England
  • Teodora Pimpireva, Senior Privacy & Data Protection Counsel, Mastercard

In the run-up to the General Data Protection Regulation on May 25th 2018 and beyond, data protection professionals have had to navigate GDPR implementation within organisations that process large volumes of data.

Commenting on those who will be awarded, Ian Evans, Managing Director – EMEA, OneTrust said:
