In 2018 information security professionals experienced a significant impact to the industry: The European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Since its implementation, the way companies around the globe handle and store personal data has been nearly revolutionized. One of the most interesting implications of GDPR is the number of other countries around the globe that are following suit – Brazil, India, and Canada to name a few, with various states within the United States doing the same. This year, with Brexit, even more of the world is watching for an example of how to proceed in many ways. In this webinar we will cover:
- The Ripple Effects of GDPR – what it means for data privacy and international legal practices
- The Economics of Cybersecurity – cost of breaches, cost to brand reputation, cost to business, cost to the public
- Best practices for addressing the key tenets of the GDPR and similar privacy standards
