Path to GDPR: Practical steps to take
8.30am – 12pm
Royal College of Physicians, Kildare St, Dublin 2
Ward Solutions outlining the practical steps that organisations need to take to achieve compliance to impending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation. The seminar follows on from Ward Solution’s booked-out February event, which aimed to raise awareness of the implications of GDPR, and is open to professionals who are eager to identify the specific actions that they need to take over the course of the next 12 months.
GDPR is one of the most significant pieces of legislation of recent times to affect organisations whose core activities involve the processing of data. It will have far-reaching effects on Irish businesses and will set the tone for the majority of conversations about cybersecurity throughout 2017.
At the event, industry experts from Ward Solutions and Fortinet will advise attendees on how to prioritise their information security and compliance activities to develop strategies that can identify and mitigate the risks to personal data putting organisations at significant risk. As well as this, attendees are invited to submit questions which will be answered on the day. This will ensure that the genuine concerns of Irish business owners and professionals when it comes to GDPR are addressed, enabling them to leave the event more certain than ever before about the steps that they need to take next.
Ward Solutions’ 2017 Information Security Report will be launched at the event. Presenting an outline of the results of Ward’s 2017 Information Security Survey, the whitepaper provides insights into Irish organisations’ approach to tackling rising threats, while highlighting the challenges of taking the initial steps towards GDPR compliance. Copies will be provided to all attendees on the day.
