The General Data Protection Regulation – Challenges and Opportunities

For the third seminar in our 2018 series we are delighted to welcome Ms Helen Dixon, Data Protection Commissioner for Ireland.

Helen Dixon was appointed as Data Protection Commissioner for Ireland in September 2014. Responsible for upholding the rights of individuals regarding how data about them is used, the role, among other things, requires regulation of a large number of US internet multinationals with European bases in Ireland. Previously Irish Registrar of Companies, Helen has also held senior roles in the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation working on economic migration policy, science, technology and innovation policy. She spent the first ten years of her career in the IT industry. She holds postgraduate qualifications in European Economic and Public Affairs, Governance, Computer Science, Official Statistics for Policy Evaluation, and Judicial Skills and Decision Making. She was delighted to have been awarded an honorary fellowship of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA) in 2014.
