CISO / CPO GDPR Summits
November
Seattle

The GDPR fundamentally changed the data privacy landscape, but that was clearly just the beginning.  The recently approved California Consumer Privacy Act firmly plants similar rights in the US market, and other global regulations demonstrate that we are in a new era of data privacy.? It’s time for a paradigm shift in our approach to data ownership and rights.

This series is part of a special education / networking series in which TrustrArc is partnering with Intel, Microsoft, BDO, and GDPR Edge to bring to 20 locations across the US and EU.  The Summits will bring together a wide range of expertise and industry perspectives from practitioners, the participating partners, and other special guests to discuss emerging trends on data privacy management.

Privacy Insight Series Webinar
What the GDPR Means for your Cybersecurity Strategy
November 28 @ 9AM PT | 12PM ET | 4PM GMT
Online Webinar  

In this highly-connected world, there is potential for even the most secure networks to be compromised. With the GDPR bringing increased fines and heightened consumer expectations on how consumer data is handled, there’s additional pressure on your company’s cybersecurity strategy to stay one step ahead. A focus on preventative measures needs to become more sophisticated with a multi-layered approach to cybersecurity and ongoing risk management.

In this webinar we’ll look at the role the CISO plays in managing GDPR compliance, the role of tools such as anonymisation and integrated assessments, and how the privacy team can partner effectively with the security team.
