Any seasoned legal, technology or data professional knows that an effective IG strategy is a key weapon when addressing new compliance regulations. Accordingly, with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect in May 2018, many multinational companies are refocusing their data protection, privacy, and IG efforts. Organizations with well-developed IG programs will be more prepared to deal with stringent GDPR requirements such as the right to be forgotten, the right to data access, and the right to data portability and consent to the use of personal data. This session will focus on areas of overlap between IG practices and the GDPR and reiterate how the GDPR is another compelling reason to develop an IG framework in your organization.
