LIVE WEBINAR | How to adopt AI in compliance with the GPDR 

Tuesday, 4 June 2024

3:00 – 4:00 pm (BST)

AI has transformed how organisations operate – but also presents a minefield of compliance challenges.

Data protection laws like the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) have shone a spotlight on how organisations handle personal data, particularly when deploying AI systems.

Privacy consultant Mark James warns:

“AI systems can lack transparency in how they make decisions, leading to bias, discrimination and significant data privacy risks.”

Why is compliance with the GDPR important when adopting AI?

  • Opaque decision-making: AI systems often make decisions in a ‘black box’, leaving data subjects vulnerable to bias and discrimination.
  • Automated decision-making: Organisations must respect data subjects’ rights related to fully automated decision-making, which can have significant legal and financial consequences.
  • Sensitive-data processing risks: Technologies like facial recognition require handling biometric data, making data protection crucial.

Webinar Agenda

In this webinar, you’ll get practical strategies and expert insights from Mark James, including:

  • How existing data protection laws such as the GDPR regulate AI use;
  • Assessing risk and mitigation strategies through DPIAs (data protection impact assessments);
  • Key data protection pitfalls to look out for when assessing AI tools;
  • Privacy by design as a concept for organisations striving for innovation; and
  • Our recommendations for AI success.
