Get on top of data risk management in the EU

Big data is oxygen to businesses large and small in the modern era, which is why it must be used and treated with the utmost of care.

Accordingly, companies dealing with big data – those who handle the personal details of individuals and organisations in the EU – can leave no stone unturned in their efforts to keep this data safe. In the era of the GDPR, it means we simply cannot afford to get compliant processing wrong. 

Understanding the obligations of this new legislative climate is fundamental to knowing how the GDPR applies to your organisation. From here, executives can begin to implement risk management through every facet of business, from personnel behaviours, to processes and policies, so that data protection becomes the 24/7 concern that it must be.

Industry-leading webinar

You can get to the cutting edge of debate of this crucial issue by tuning into “GDPR & Risk Management across the EU”, an industry-leading webinar hosted by Data Protection World Forum.

Taking place on Tuesday, August 21st at 2pm, the broadcast will study the core aspects of the risk-based approach to the new data security laws, taking likelihood, harm and vulnerabilities into account.

Also on the agenda:

  • Determining how varieties of data correspond to specific risk categories, including location, access and transfer.
  • What a data protection impact assessment (DPIA) is, how it can be used and when it needs to be actioned.
  • Who needs to be in charge of a DPIA and how DPIA implementation plays out
  • Identification of processes that the GDPR standards deem to be ‘high risk’, and what acceptable ‘residual risk’ means.
  • How to contact and deal with supervisory authorities.
