With less than five months to comply with the GDPR, the most sweeping change to data protection in the past 20 years, organizations in virtually every industry and geography are experiencing major challenges in meeting this deadline. In a recent IAPP survey measuring 500 privacy professionals’ perceived risk of not complying with the GDPR, U.S. and EU respondents ranked failure to prepare for the GDPR 72-hour breach notification, failure to conduct data inventory/mapping, and failure to obtain user consent as the top risk areas. To help mitigate GDPR compliance risks, enterprises list training employees on data protection and privacy, and investment in technology tools as the top action items.
To help companies address these risks and as a follow-up to the 2017 program which was filled to maximum capacity, we are offering another series of GDPR workshops and webinars to provide valuable training and education for businesses that must comply by the May 25th, 2018 deadline. The GDPR workshops and webinars collectively attracted thousands of attendees in 2017 and will continue to feature expert instructors and focus on providing tips and best practices based on TrustArc’s proven methodology. The workshops and webinars are free of charge and attendees qualify for valuable CPE credits.
Topics to be discussed in the workshops include: data mapping, records of processing activities, Article 30 and 35 reports, DPIAs, PIAs, individual rights management, GDPR HR data considerations, and GDPR technology solution and tool demonstrations.
