You now have less than a year to make sure you’re compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). By 25 May 2018, all organisations that process EU residents’ personal data will have to meet the Regulation’s strict new rules. If they don’t, they’ll face fines of up to €20 million (around £18 million) or 4% of their annual global turnover – whichever is greater.
For organisations taking their first steps towards implementing a GDPR compliance project, IT Governance’s upcoming webinar, The first steps towards GDPR compliance, is essential viewing. It will feature data protection and information security experts sharing practical insights about implementing a data-centric security approach in line with the Regulation. The webinar will help you improve your information security defences, mitigate your risks and make your GDPR compliance budget more efficient.
It will also explain:
- Why you have to comply with the GDPR and what might happen if you don’t
- The GDPR’s direct effect on your business and the transition timelines
- The first steps in preparing for GDPR compliance
- The technical and organisational measures your business will need to adopt to comply with the Regulation
- Key recommendations and industry-recognised practices to help you achieve GDPR compliance
At the end of the session, you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and request advice on particular situations that you’re unsure about.
