The European Union’s proposed new data protection regulation aims to update Europe’s data protection laws and to provide a more consistent data protection framework across the Continent.
But the new regulation, which replaces the EU’s existing data protection directive and member states’ data protection laws, will put some new demands on organisations holding personal data. Breach disclosure and “the right to be forgotten” will force businesses to update their data protection and retention policies.
This presentation will:
- Review the current EU laws, and contrast them with laws in other parts of the world;
- Examine the arguments for strengthening data protection in Europe, and the likely outcomes;
- Look at what security teams should already be doing to put themselves ahead of legislative changes;
- Outline strategies and technologies organisations need to meet current and future data protection requirements
- Help infosecurity teams to explain the changes – and their consequences – to their boards
