After two-years, how has the GDPR enhanced individual control for data subjects? Webinar series


Beltug and the Cyber Security Coalition collaborated on a series of five Webinars, as part of a joint event called 'GDPR: two years later: What does it mean for the data subject? A look back and ahead'.


Between 28 May and 25 June, these 1-hour interactive virtual meetings evaluated the GDPR from the perspective of the data subject, to assess its effectiveness in actively enhancing individual control.


For each session, there is a recording, a presentation and a blog by the CSC available:
