7 Key GDPR Requirements and the Role of Data Governance
The clock is ticking, we are less than a month away from the May 25th deadline.  Privacy and protection of personal information continues to be a hot topic in data governance.  Any enterprise doing business in Europe or retaining European citizen data must comply with the GDPR directive. Furthermore, companies can be fined up to €20 million or 4% of their annual revenue (whichever is greater) if they do not comply. If you are just starting, what do you need to do now?  For those that are well on their way, how do you ensure that you make it as painless as possible?  What happens next as your organization addressed challenges around ensuring effective implementation and subsequent operational oversight of policies required for GDPR compliance?   How is your organization making sure it will avoid penalties, fines, and punishments?  This session will look at the key requirements of GDPR, critical first steps and “best practices” approaches towards company-wide compliance.
