Get GDPR-Ready – Because Data Protection Is About to Get Personal

October 12, 2017 from 03:00 PM – 04:00 PM UTC

On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect, impacting every organization conducting business with individuals in the EU — consumers, employees and business contacts alike. On that date, organizations will encounter new, uniform data protection regulations relating to the information of EU subjects — or potentially face hefty fines and other penalties. Yet many business, privacy and security leaders are not ready for it. To help address our clients’ concerns, IBM Security has developed a five-phased framework approach to GDPR readiness.

Join us as Adam Nelson, Executive Consultant and Global Privacy Leader for IBM Security, and Cindy E. Compert, CIPT/M, CTO Data Security & Privacy for IBM Security, as they walk you through this critical security framework.

This webinar will provide an overview of the IBM Security GDPR framework, including:

  • An introduction to the EU GDPR, including its purpose, key aspects and provisions of the regulation, and new or enhanced requirements;
  • Steps organizations are taking on their path to GDPR readiness and what can be done to prepare;
  • A deep-dive into the five phases of GDPR readiness with a focus on security and privacy requirements and activities for you to consider in each phase; and
  • Solutions that can help organizations address these requirements, no matter where they are in their readiness journey.
