  • TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Wednesday, November 14, 2018 TIME: 14:10-15:10 LOCATION: Carl von Gontard

Security professionals are facing increasing challenges, even more so after General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May this year. In this panel we will discuss if the companies can really be fully compliant and the panellists will make predictions on the expected enforcement activities.  ePrivacy regulation will need to be accounted for as well in close future. 


Adam Bown is a Privacy Solutions Engineer at OneTrust – a global leader in privacy management and marketing compliance software. In his role, Adam advises many of the world's leading organisations on General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and ePrivacy (Cookie Law)...

"Balkanization of the Internet". A growing seclusion of regional parts from the general connectivity and access to information of the world, leading to tensions between internationally engaged companies that serve customers worldwide and their workforce and operations that is bound by local laws (or the laws of the country in which they store data). It is not only in the big headlines of Russian authorities attempting to ban a messaging app (leading to the indiscriminate blocking of several Thousand IPaddresses) but also small changes in legislation and "local" requirements that are changing the Internet. The presentation will guide the audience through some of these cases and shows concrete examples in which these have actual impact on businesses and their IT security, as well as attempting to show possible solutions
