Course Description

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is considered the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years.1 It has substantial ramifications for tech companies not just in the EU, but globally. The regulation protects the data of all EU subjects regardless of the country in which they reside or the platform on which their data resides.

From the 25th of May 2018, organisations who process, monitor, and store data belonging to EU citizens will be mandated to transform their marketing, system, and processing methods drastically to ensure the safety of data against cyber attacks and breaches. 
 
GDPR will require organisations who process and control data to strengthen their data privacy controls, enhance technology for management of personal data and the supplying of detailed documentation. For cloud suppliers and those companies who work with them, GDPR will also force major operational changes–so much so that it could slow both innovation and growth.
 
  • Do you know where your consumer data is?
  • Can you clearly demonstrate consumer consent?
  • Are your internal privacy controls robust and your products and services privacy-friendly?
  • Is the data you store portable and transferrable?
  • Can you completely erase personal data when needed?
  • Can you quickly recognize and report a data breach?
  • Are you confident that the third parties you utilize will be GDPR compliant?
  • Are you fully staffed with skilled privacy practitioners?
 
How ready is your company? To what extent can you demonstrate the answers to these questions? Non-compliance could mean potential fines of 4% of the previous year’s global turnover or €20 million, depending on the severity of the breach and the deemed offence “tier”.
 

What Will You Learn
