The most important change in data privacy regulation in the past 20 years takes effect May 2018. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a game changer; a comprehensive and strict framework that carries heavy financial penalties for non-compliance

The GDPR is far reaching, detailed and will involve considerable change to business processes, functions and attitudes towards collecting and processing data. Embracing adherence to the GDPR should be seen as an opportunity to reform not just for privacy, but for business agility, IT innovation and brand integrity.

This event is going to look at the practical steps to be taken to make sure you are prepared. Featuring a panel of experts from both a Legal and IT Background they will discuss how GDPR regulations, is driving public and private sector organisations alike to review their current information management practices. They will map out the critical regulatory mandates so you can better understand the challenges ahead and how to navigate around them.

Expect to hear in-depth expert analysis of specific articles contained within the legislation such as :

  • ARTICLE(S): 15, 16, 17, 18, 20 - Residents of the EU can now request visibility into all of the personal data held on them by submitting a Subject Access Request (SAR). They can also request that the data be corrected (if factually incorrect), ported (to a suitable export format) or deleted. Ensuring that your organization can undertake and service these requests in a timely manner is critical
  • Article 30 Critical steps of the GDPR legislation will be gaining a holistic understanding of where all the personal data held by an organisation is located. Building a data map of where this information is being stored, who has access to it, how long it is being retained, and where it is being moved is key to understanding how the business is processing and managing personal data.
  • ARTICLE(S): 5, 17, 32 - Data minimization, one of the main tenets of GDPR, is designed to ensure that organizations reduce the overall amount of stored personal data. This is done by only keeping personal data for a period of time directly related to the original intended purpose
