EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Need to Knows

In April 2016, the European Parliament passed the final vote for the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and MEPs agreed to update existing legislation to make it more relevant to modern technology.

While the new laws won’t be enforced for another couple of years, this is still a relatively short period considering businesses will need to get to grips with the new requirements, evaluate their existing security measures and navigate the path to full compliance in that time.

With heavier penalties and a stricter 72 hour breach notification timeline included in the new regulation, we all have an increasing part to play in keeping information secure, responding quickly when a data breach occurs and answering the requirements of litigation that may arise as a result of a breach.

Watch our panel discussion to gain a new understanding of the language and evidence of IT breaches and learn how to establish post-breach process through to litigation.

The panel will cover questions such as:

  • What does it mean for business, law enforcement and regulators?
  • What should a company do now with regard to their processes and procedures to ensure compliance?
  • How will the GDPR encourage innovation and use of big data?
