It may be cliché but it remains true; the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is not an exam date. Organisational accountability for information and services shall not end after May 2018. So how best can organisations prepare for this new world of increasing regulatory scrutiny and customer expectations?

With the advent of open banking and the emergence of quantum computing, the tide of the digital world is creating opportunities for how we do business but also challenges in how we negotiate this new environment securely. Inherent risk, legal liability, vendor management to name but a few; the vectors in the data lifecycle are expanding exponentially. We may be able manage the risk in having a framework by which to justify our actions – but how many professionals can honestly say they understand the aggregate risk in this complex environment?

Personal information – the ‘crown jewels’ of our organisation – is at the centre of this debate. Beyond GDPR, regulator expectation of how an organisation’s information assets are secured is increasing. From the provision of auditable inventories, risk-based security testing of key assets, and routine discovery activity across the estate; the range of key controls that constitutes a ‘secure estate’ has never been greater. The question can therefore be asked ‘how best can we meet this demand?’

ISACA Scotland is delighted to announce the above questions shall be answered and more at our spring seminar – Beyond GDPR: Securing Privacy Good Practice.

Join us on the evening of Thursday 15th March 2018 at the conference centre, RBS Gogarburn.
