  • Protecting and sharing information globally

    Data is more valuable than ever, and more vulnerable. The development of unprecedented ways to collect, store and use digital information is not only on the agenda of businesses, but also on the radar of individuals who are increasingly concerned by the cybersecurity and privacy risks this poses. As the opportunities for Big Data grow, so too do the challenges and global regulatory requirements.

    With the New York State Department of Financial Services Cybersecurity Regulation, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), cybersecurity laws in Singapore and China, as well as other regulations around the world and within the United States, there are real “teeth” to the issue of data protection and cyber security. New York requires senior officer or Board sign off on cybersecurity plans and programs, for example, and the European GDPR carries a harsh penalty regime including:

    • Mandatory breach disclosure causing immediate reputational damage
    • Greatly increased regulatory powers (including fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover)
    • The ability for data subjects to claim compensation (including by way of class action litigation)

    This interactive and engaging scenario based workshop will help you navigate the rapidly emerging global patchwork of regulations, and will provide practical, business focused tips on how to approach this challenging threat and regulatory environment.
