Digital transformation and hybrid IT are pushing security perimeters off premises, into the cloud, and into the digital workplace. As a result, enforcing cybersecurity policies is more complex than ever. As organisations explore new ways of doing business, you need to balance risk with compliance. We know that organisations are suffering a growing number of data breaches, and the potential security weakpoints keep growing as fast as technology changes. You need to protect your digital business by making sure you’re prepared for both existing and future threats. Have you got the right systems, technologies, policies and processes in place to ensure business resilience? And have you considered what impact the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will have on your cybersecurity posture?

Discussion questions to be explored:

  • What have you found to be the myths around GDPR?
  • Where are the hidden risks and how do you uncover them?
  • What practical steps should executives be taking now to ensure they will be compliant by May 2018
  • What are some common misconceptions about how ready companies are today?
  • What are the major challenges within GDPR that arise during digital transformation programs
  • Who is responsible for educating people on cybersecurity awareness?
  • What synergies do you see between privacy officers and CISO with regards to GDPR?
  • What is the role and impact of IT in a programmatic approach to GDPR?
  • How to assess and communicate the risks across senior leadership and technical executive?

Your delegate package includes:

  • Comprehensive event documentation – including option to download presentations from our secure website
  • Custom report based on information and opinion created during workshop
