With increasing threat of data breaches, the next major compliance mandate in data protection, data privacy, and IT security is EU's General Data Projection Regulation (GDPR) with global implications. The session explores requirements, impact, areas of compliance risks, penalties, and practical means of compliance solutions, including a basic set of questions for self-assessments such as: - Can you determine what your risk profile is? - Can we control where data resides? - Can we enhance data privacy, including data obfuscation? - Can we quickly and comprehensively notify in the event of a breach? - Can we continuously evaluate the effectiveness of our security? - What personal data is out there and where is it? - Can we control what personal data is accessible and who can access it? - Can we detect unauthorized access or breaches of personal data? Through the active discussion and self-assessment on these topics, the audience will gain insights to high level requirements and gauge current compliance level.
