The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law changes coming into play will impact museums and visitor privacy globally, enforceable from 25 May 2018. To help clarify what GDPR means for museums both in the EU and also in other countries, the MCN Data and Insights SIG will present a webinar on GDPR led by Paulina Jedwabska, Head of Information Governance and Departmental Records Officer at Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
