On 1 February we hosted the first of this year’s Discussion Forums.
The purpose of this session was to share information about the changes to the current Data Protection Act, look forward at the implementation of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its impact on share registers, nominees and employee share plans as well as provide an opportunity to discuss some of the practical implications.
Key topics covered:
- A clear overview of the GDPR timeline;
- The Information Commissioners Office route to GDPR compliance;
- Equiniti’s approach and continual development of data protection, specifically at EQ Boardroom products of registration services and employee services;
- Introduction to our new solution EQ Synergy and the importance of working together.
The session concluded with question time with our GDPR expert Adam Green, Chief Risk Officer, Steve Banfield, Industry Director and Jennifer Rudman, Strategic Development Manager.
The event was well received by our clients who provided excellent feedback.
