New Regulations and the Next Steps
- TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Friday, September 21, 2018 TIME: 11:30-12:30 LOCATION: Emerald 3
Since May 25th 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation is in force, many companies are still struggling with implementing effective risk assurance programs that constitute a key requirement for any sensible cybersecurity and compliance strategy.
Without full and clear visibility into the true company-wide risk posture, executives are bound to have massive difficulties understanding and communicating their current cybersecurity and compliance standing compared to their peers as well as the industry’s guidelines and best practices. Unprepared to address a potential data breach, they are inevitably going to face all the grim consequences, which, since this May, are now very expensive.
This panel will discuss the necessary ingredients for creating a risk management framework for holistic cyber risk governance and talk about the needed steps to help bridge the information sharing and communication gaps between business functions after GDPR enforcement.
Principles of data privacy and cybersecurity converge when organizations exchange, transfer and process sensitive information. And, the more sensitive the data collected, including health-related data and biometric data, the more likely that an entity will need to comply with heightened regulatory requirements.
