GDPR: The Six Critical Steps to Compliance and Brand Differentiation

From May 2018 when the upcoming EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes into force, the requirements for managing personal data will change. Companies collecting such information from their customers will have to adapt to fundamental changes both in the very definition of personal data and in technical requirements around its secure and privacy-enhanced processing, including topics like consent management, data portability and the right to be forgotten. You will also understand why leading companies, however, will look beyond compliance to how they can enhance their customers’ experience and trust to stand out from their competitors.
The scope of this regulation is very broad and it affects all organizations, including global enterprises outside of the EU, that collect, hold or process personal data on EU residents. The requirements for maintaining consumers’ privacy are significantly more stringent through this new framework and the fines for compliance violations have been increased accordingly, reaching up to 4% of the company’s annual worldwide turnover.
With less than 12 months to go, is your organization ready to comply with these requirements that demand better controls over how it uses and manages the personal data that it holds?
This webinar will provide actionable insights into:
- What the regulation covers and why it matters to your organization.
- The critical areas where your IT team needs to take action to ensure compliance.
- How a comprehensive Customer IAM solution can help you meet these requirements.
- How your solution can go beyond compliance to improving customer engagement.
In the first part of the webinar, Mike Small, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will describe the six critical steps that your IT organization needs to take to ensure compliance with GDPR.
In the second part, Matt Klassen, Director of Product Marketing at Ping Identity, will discuss how a leading Customer IAM solution can not only help you meet GDPR compliance in several areas, but also deliver a better digital experience for your customers – and ultimately help you stand out from your competitors.

One of the biggest challenges is finding the right balance between enabling WfH and security.
