Industry Event: Building Resilience in a Post GDPR World

Dominique Adams


Sympatico Consulting

Beyond the cyber threats, data breaches, risks and compliance, where are the opportunities for digital transformation and innovation in a post GDPR world? 

Sympatico Consulting and Oslo-based Ardoq are co-hosting an industry networking event on August 14th in Edinburgh to look at how businesses, leaders and public bodies in Scotland are managing complex risks and adapting to regulatory disruption just three months into the implementation of the GDPR.

The event is all about bringing together and sharing perspectives and experience, and will have leaders and decision makers from the technology start up space, Scotland’s public and private sectors in attendance.

The goal is to drive greater collaboration to tackle big global issues (cyber threats, digitisation, technology, regulation and culture), which impact on businesses and organisations of all sizes locally and globally, and span multiple subject domains. The event will be held on the 14th of August in Edinburgh and have expert panellists from The University of Edinburgh and Aedile Consulting.

Key Topics

Speakers will look at how Scotland-based organisations of all sizes can build the right technical and organisational capability to sustain compliance and maintain their competitive edge in the face of adversity and dynamic brand threats.

Other key themes of the event will include:

  • How best to support new and established Scottish organisations to prepare and respond in the event of a crisis or business disruption.
  • What capabilities Scottish businesses and leaders really need to manage the risks while harnessing the opportunities.
  • What resilience really means for an organisations’ accountability, brand and reputation, customer trust, culture, IT capability, and ability to change and innovate.
