Following the success of our Belfast seminar ‘Will GDPR drive your security strategy in 2017?’ and the huge interest in the implications of the impending GDPR, IBM and Ward Solutions will co-host a similar event on Friday, 10th February in the Royal College of Physicians, Kildare Street, Dublin 2. The event is open to professionals interested in learning more about the impact that GDPR compliance may have on your Information Security strategy in 2017 and 2018.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive in May 2018, and will aim to offer the same data protection rights across the EU, regardless of where data is processed. Irish companies need to ensure compliance, as they will otherwise be liable for fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20M. As well as greater sanctions, GDPR has implications in other areas such as data breach notification, new rights for individuals, requirements for privacy assessment, the need to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) and new responsibilities for data processors.
At this event, information security and privacy experts from IBM and Ward Solutions will discuss these changes and other implications of the impending GDPR legislation. They will also highlight the considerations and prioritised Information Security activities that you need to be taking in 2017 in order to become compliant and outline a comprehensive approach to maintaining compliance.
Finally, attendees will hear industry-leading advice on developing information security strategies to tackle increasingly sophisticated cyber-security threats that may put your GDPR compliance and your organisation at significant risk.
This event presents an ideal opportunity for organisations to stay abreast of developments in the information security landscape, and gain awareness of how they can prepare for GDPR legislation. Admission is free and the seminar will be followed by a light buffet which will present excellent networking opportunities.
