Eventbrite - IRMA SG - GDPR, One Year On: What Have We Learnt?

Speaker: Reza Alavi is the Managing Director of Information Security Audit Control Consultancy (ISACC)

Event Details:

It is now one year since General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became compliant on 25th of May 2018. In this talk we will be discussing the most complex and troublesome issues for organisations and businesses in the process of GDPR compliance and the lessons which we learnt from. GDPR compliance programs impacted organisations in wide-ranging issues, each involving so many stakeholders and user groups. In addition, there have been cost implications for many corporations. We will be looking into the following issues in the compliance journey:

• Adaptation of any new requirements
• Reviewing and re-writing any policies
• Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA), System Audit & Risk Assessment
• Training
• Rethinking of budget planning
• SLA’s, vendors, 3rd party contractors and Cloud providers
• Data Subject Rights (Minors, Profiling, Consent, Rights to be Forgotten, etc.)
• Dealing with data breaches

We hope this session to be a fully interactive one in which we share our experiences and learn from each other.
