Understanding the GDPR Impact on Corporate IT
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, November 28, 2017 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
The upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) can be a major challenge for any organization established or just doing business in the European Union. Soon, failing to properly protect personal information of EU residents may lead to harsh financial penalties, so organizations are scrambling to understand the impact of GDPR on their processes, applications and systems and to adapt to the new requirements accordingly.
Addressing GDPR requirements is a complex undertaking that requires coordination between different departments including but not limited to IT, security, legal, human resources, marketing and communications. Translating the legal requirements into concrete organizational, technical and security measures and aligning them with existing corporate and industry policies and regulations not just helps find the easiest route to address GDPR compliance, but can promise cost savings by mapping them to existing security tools.
In this KuppingerCole webinar, we are looking at specific underlying principles and certain key obligations of the GDPR and translating them into concrete IT measures that your organization may want to consider in order to address its compliance needs by May 2018 when GDPR becomes effective. These include:
- Document your data flows and fulfill your documentation obligations
- Addressing extended Data Subject’s rights
- Prevent, Detect and Respond to Data breaches
In the first part of the webinar, Matthias Reinwarth, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will provide an overview of GDPR as a challenge for any organization operating within the European Union. He will outline the most important GDPR security-related obligations and explain their impact on corporate information security.
In the second part, Alessandro Vallega, GDPR Business Development Director EMEA at Oracle, will give a more detailed explanation for each of these principles and map them to concrete technical measures that are recommended to address them. He will also give a few hints about where to start the “compliance journey” and connect this journey to Oracle security technologies.

Data is widely considered the “new oil" because data has great value and provides direct and secondary revenue streams. But, also like oil, data can leak from organizations that depend on it. Therefore, data security and the prevention of data leakage is imperative for business as well as regulatory compliance reasons.
