GDPR



Is your organisation ready for GDPR? Do you know exactly how GDPR will affect you?

PwC recently surveyed 200 companies with more than 500 employees and found that 92% considered compliance with GDPR a top priority. It’s worth remembering that a violation of GDPR, such as poor data security which leads to public exposure of personal information, could result in a fine of over 20 million euros or 4% of your company’s net income.

This year we have a seminar programme solely dedicated to GDPR which will give you access to world-class experts who can help you understand what is coming, what you need to be doing and how you can be compliant.

GDPR Seminars

  • GDPR and the work-time paradox Wed 4th Oct 15:00 - 15:30

    GDPR and the work-time paradox

    The GDPR is built on a false assumption of organisational readiness for the new law and data protection confidence and maturity. This false assumption creates a work time paradox, that there has always been too much to do and too little time, therefore legislative compliance failure is inevitable, even in the best run and best resourced organisations. If you're running a GDPR programme, how do you prioritise and know if your choices are good? What's your understanding of GDPR? You need to understand the concepts of adverse scrutiny, and the priorities of people and stakeholders who will want to challenge you.

  • The GDPR Countdown is on! Are you Ready? Thu 5th Oct 15:00 - 15:30

    The GDPR Countdown is on! Are you Ready?

    Root and branch data protection reform is coming under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018.  The extent of the reform means that many businesses don’t know where to start.  We’ll guide you through what this reform means for your business and give you a practical way to approach your compliance.  We will also look at the positives coming out of GDPR and how to make it work for you.  Even though this is European legislation, the Government has confirmed that it will still become law despite Brexit!  Topics for discussion include:
     
    - Where to start with your compliance
    - What records should you keep and what policies should you have
    - Compulsory notification of data breaches
    - What consent looks like under GDPR
    - Transparency and what you should be doing with your privacy policies
    - The Right to be Forgotten
    - Increased subject access rights
    - Fines and the ability for individuals to sue
     
    We’ll draw on our 20 years data protection experience, looking at key actions businesses need to take and how to navigate the pathway to compliance.

  • Reducing Network Complexity Challenges for Securing IoT & Cloud Environments to achieve GDPR Compliance Wed 4th Oct 15:40 - 16:10

    Reducing Network Complexity Challenges for Securing IoT & Cloud Environments to achieve GDPR Compliance

    With expansion into the cloud and supporting IP-Enabled mobile and IoT/ICS infrastructure, security and network teams are learning that increasing network complexity has exposed them to a greater attack surface. While ransomware attacks have had a severe impact on both the reputation and financials of many well-known companies, additional requirements imposed by GDPR compliance is putting significant pressure on IT organizations. At this session, Lumeta will show you how to eliminate 100% of your blind spots as we find 40% more of your network, cloud and endpoint infrastructure and monitor in REAL-TIME to detect threats across an expanding attack surface.

  • How to Tackle the GDPR: A Typical Privacy & Security Roadmap Thu 5th Oct 14:00 - 14:50

    How to Tackle the GDPR: A Typical Privacy & Security Roadmap

    As a new era of privacy regulations approaches, security and compliance professionals need to make GDPR a top priority. It is essential to build a roadmap with both privacy and security in mind. In this session, we’ll discuss the importance of privacy management within the context of your existing security and compliance ecosystem –– how it fits into the larger puzzle, why it has been precariously overlooked in the past, and how it can be seamlessly integrated as a function among the information security, information technology, risk management, audit and compliance, as well as legal areas in your organization. We’ll address the importance of demonstrating on-going compliance with privacy regulations like GDPR, and how privacy management software can support security and GRC teams.

  • Eliminate GDPR Fines, Phishing and Shadow IT – With One Move! Thu 5th Oct 11:00 - 11:30

    Eliminate GDPR Fines, Phishing and Shadow IT – With One Move!

    The trend towards cloud is moving enterprise identities outside the traditional corporate infrastructure, creating new, and exacerbating existing, security vulnerabilities. In this presentation My1Login CEO, Mike Newman, will present on how to eliminate GDPR fines, phishing and shadow-IT. Mike’s presentation will include a customer case study of the security challenges faced by a highly-regulated, enterprise organisation and how they were able to “lock down” their access management by putting the business back in control of passwords rather than the users, whilst ensuring a positive, simple user experience.

    Reconciling Regulatory Requirements with Technology

    The clock is ticking and GDPR is getting closer.  However GDPR is not an industry standard that relies on technology to tick the boxes, how to be compliant with the regulation will be unique to each organization.  The one constant however is the role that a secure network must play in data protection.  Whether data is being created, is in motion or at rest, protecting it from cyber-attacks requires an underlying network that is secure.  This session will focus on the role of network level security within the GDPR framework and how it can support an organization’s GDPR compliance efforts.
