A magazine for a new era in data protection

Data Protection Magazine has been launched, to provide readers with the latest news, comment and insight in data protection and privacy.

The first edition was released just a few days before the implementation of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect on 25th May. The magazine offers the business generalist rather than the data protection or privacy professional insight and opinion into the latest developments of data protection.

The magazine will be released on a quarterly basis and in this issue, it features interviews with Abigail Dubiniecki, Specialist at My Inhouse Lawyer, and Nicola McKilligan Regan, Senior Partner at Privacy Partnership, alongside other experts covering topics including, GDPR, blockchain, PSD2, and PECR.

The issue also includes written features by data protection expert Ardi Kolah, Executive Fellow and Director of the GDPR Transition Programme at Henley Business School covers GDPR and blockchain technology.

Data Protection Magazine has been developed by the creators of the GDPR Summit Series and the Data Protection World Forum, these events focus on delivering quality content to help organisations with data protection compliance.

As the partner publication for the Data Protection World Forum, the magazine is currently free of charge and available to download from the website in a digital format to read on

smartphones and tablets.

Michael Baxter, editor of Data Protection Magazine said:

‚ÄúData is a key driver of the so called ‚Äėfourth industrial revolution‚Äô. But unless the public can trust organisations with their data, the revolution may come to a shuddering halt. Creating this trust is vital. Organisations must be accountable and transparency is key. That is why new regulations were required. Governments now see protecting privacy as being equally important to stopping people from lending to criminals or selling arms to rogue states.

‚ÄúData Protection Magazine is an easy and informed read for senior staff within organisations and privacy professionals. It is designed to throw light on the key issues.‚ÄĚ
