GDPR for the CISO – is it a Friend or Foe?

Coming into force on 25 May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) constitutes a new Europe wide law in terms of the protection of personal and sensitive personal data. Any data driven organisation needs an adapt-or-die GDPR approach in order to survive and thrive.

Join us for discussions and strategic insight into how the security and data protection chiefs can practically sustain the challenge to improve fraud detection and compliance reporting, harness fraud measuring and analytics tools, and get an integrated view of customers.

Throughout the evening we will benchmark the GDPR status quo across various data driven sectors of Sweden and explore how to identify the challenges that come with data protection regulations.

You will be mixing business with pleasure – the serious business of fine dining together with the pleasure of connecting with senior-level peers.

Points to be learned

  1. Security of data processing standards
  2. Real challenges of protecting data
  3. Current status quo of GDPR alert in Sweden
