The ICO exists to empower you through information.

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) will hold its annual Data Protection Practitioners' Conference (DPPC) online on Tuesday 8 October.

Whether it’s your first time or you’re a DPPC regular, this FREE event will have something for you regardless of experience level, sector or specialism.

The DPPC will include content on both data protection and freedom of information legislation and is the only information rights conference where you’ll hear directly from the regulator throughout the day.

Our delegates are on the frontline of information rights – helping stop cyber-attacks, preventing personal information falling into the wrong hands and ensuring the organisations we all trust are careful with our details.

The programme will include inspirational keynote speakers, practical workshops run by the ICO’s expert staff and thought-provoking panels.

Last year’s DPPC saw more than 5,000 people tune in, with 82% learning something new and 72% taking action to put into practice what they’d learned in the three months after conference. That means ultimately people’s information is in safer hands. Popular sessions included cyber security, sharing information to safeguard children and how to respond to Subject Access Requests.
