A webinar on the implications of Brexit and GDPR for technology companies will be hosted by it@cork on the 16th of December at 4pm. This event will feature input from Mike McGrath of Arvo and Micheál O’Dowd from O’Dowd Solicitors and be chaired by it@cork Vice Chairperson Donagh Kiernan of Tenego Partnering.
Experts in their field, Arvo have worked with several thousand businesses on the island of Ireland around their Brexit challenges whilst Micheál O’ Dowd offers specialist services in Data Protection and GDPR issues and advises a broad range of companies and agencies on how to achieve compliance in this regard.
Data Protection was not a large consideration for most UK citizens and businesses on the run up to the 2016 Brexit referendum, but their decision to leave the European Union, is causing much panic now for businesses transferring data to and from the UK. This webinar will look at the key issues and answer questions on the challenges for Irish based technology companies.
Expert panellists include:
- Mike McGrath – Managing Director of Arvo
- Micheál O’Dowd – Principal BCL LLM at O’Dowd Solicitors
- Donagh Kiernan – CEO of Tenego Partnering
