GDPR - where do we stand on the journey to compliance? (N-sight)

Location:Gosset Hotel, Groot-Bijgaarden


With less than 350 days left, it’s safe to say that many companies are well on their way towards GDPR compliance, with a data protection project underway. But it’s clear that there are still many hurdles and uncertainties left along the road.


In this session, we take a look at the optimisation of breach notification processes with SecureLink, while Veritas Technologies will share how it has tackled its internal GDPR project. The Privacy Commission will outline its guidelines, and you'll receive a status update on where Beltug stands in helping companies with the IT implementation of this EU regulation.

14:45 The GDPR from a technological perspective: Moving towards GDPR readiness

The GDPR involves legal issues, business processes and technological aspects - all around the protection of EU citizens' personal data. That is why it is important to know the location and purpose of this data. Once it has been mapped, you can define the necessary legal actions, adjust processes, and apply ‘Privacy by Design’ through technology. In this session, Simen explains how to optimise your breach notification processes and streamline the possible technological changes.
