Why You Should Attend

Privacy by Design & GDPR Compliance

GDPR compliance can be complex, costly and disruptive as organisations invest the time and resources needed to update systems and processes to the security level the regulations require. However, data protection is now an essential consideration for an effective regulatory compliance framework, particularly for those within the GDPR's extensive reach.

Many companies have found it challenging to implement the necessary systems and processes to manage the immense amounts of data collected, track it from creation to destruction, and manage the storage of such data according to specific criteria in between. Regardless, failure to follow stringent data privacy rules will result in fines based on the severity of the breach, the character of the infringement, and the organisation's compliance protocol. The most egregious offenders will face hefty fines up to 20 million Euro or 4% of their annual revenue.

At a minimum, organisations should find themselves investing more in overall data security resources, additional staff or upgraded technology. However, to avoid risking fines all organisations handling the personal data of European citizens or residents must take active steps to ensure complete compliance.

EU regulators indicate they plan on actively enforcing GDPR compliance. Dedicate time to understand what you need to do in order to become compliant. Avoid substantial fines; be prepared to offer evidence of data protection processes and accountability, as well as transparency with the regulators. This training will help you understand what you need to do in order to ensure your business and you are complaint sooner, rather than later.
