General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for Identity Architects

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has many identity architects uniquely positioned to help their organizations to comply with the ruling.

Effective from 25th May 2018, the regulation 2016/679 of the European parliament and of the council, replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe. It aims to protect and empower all EU residents' data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. GDPR is also quite prominent due to the heavy penalties introduced for violators — which could be as much as 4% of the annual global turnover or €20 million (whichever is greater).

In this webinar we will discuss all technical aspects of the regulation and what steps you as an identity architect can take to ensure that your security strategy is primed for GDPR.
