The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new, sweeping data privacy regulation driven by the European Union, that will impact organizations globally. GDPR will massively change up the type of data that constitutes Personal Identifiable Information (PII), raising the spectre of privacy restrictions that could grind data processing to a halt and require a much higher degree of compliance processes and oversight.
Join Rita Zurbrigg from Info-Tech Research group to learn how the data landscape is shifting, why GDPR matters for Canadian organizations (and all global organizations!) and how we can begin to move towards compliance – before the May 25th 2018 deadline. Notably, fines for non-compliance can be up to 20 million Euro or 4% of annual revenue, making the risk of a data breach and non-compliance much greater than solely a reputational impact. Become a proactive data management organization that builds in privacy and security into the collection and use of personal data.
