The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that becomes effective end of May this year will have great impact on how companies and government organizations manage digital information when dealing with information from citizens and other subject in the European Union. As data is the life blood of most organizations, it is no exaggeration to state that the GDPR will require fundamental changes in organizational behavior.
The new regulation covers multiple aspects of data protection, privacy, and cybersecurity and information rights. There is the right to question an organization about the possession of one’s personal information. Everyone has and can exercise “the right to be forgotten”. There are strict cyber-security requirements (mandatory data encryption, data security measures, report of breaches, informing subjects of data breaches, etc.), data processing rules, the need to redact or pseudonymize sensitive information when there is no explicit need to store such information and the need to ask for and save prior consent before certain personal information is collected and stored.
There is no Silver bullet to cover all GDPR requirements. But there are many things organizations can do to address at least the most notorious GDPR requirements. Join us for this webinar moderated by Mary Mack, with Kenneth Rashbaum and Johannes Scholtes and hear what and how.
