Upcoming webinar: GDPR requirements for Cloud providers

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Cloud providers face a significant number of compliance challenges and a new set of requirements for processing the data of EU residents, whether or not they are based, or have operations, in Europe.

The Regulation requires controllers to implement adequate security measures to avoid data loss, alteration or unauthorised processing. Organisations need to identify the purpose for collecting and processing data and implement the appropriate technical and organisational measures required to achieve compliance with the GDPR.

To help Cloud service providers understand their GDPR compliance requirements, Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, will deliver a live webinar session on the GDPR requirements for Cloud providers. The 45-minute session takes place on 9 February 2017 from 3:00 – 3:45 (GMT) and will be followed by a 15-minute Q&A .

The webinar is designed to help Cloud providers understand the requirements of the Regulation by providing an overview of the following key points:

  • The GDPR and what it means for Cloud service providers.
  • The technical and organisational measures applicable to Cloud service providers.
  • The policies and procedures required by the GDPR.
  • The ‘privacy by design’ and ‘privacy by default’ requirements.
  • The rights of data subjects.
  • Breach notification obligations.
  • The impact of subcontracting on Cloud service providers.
  • ISO 27018 and implementing security controls for personally identifiable information in the Cloud.
