With the increased focus on the collection, storage, and use of personal information by regulators and influential groups, there are significant financial and reputational risks and hurdles which companies need to consider. Certain types of information are considered particularly sensitive due to privacy or identity protection risks and need to be treated by companies in accordance under both local and international laws. Although most laws relate to personal information, companies must also consider how and when corporate information is covered, and how data interrogation and interpretation is leading to a broader view of how individual data needs to be protected.
Companies need to evidence that they are committed to ensuring their practice and processes are in compliance with data protection laws and that all employees and third parties take those responsibilities seriously. Companies will also need to evidence their testing and audit processes for information integrity and protection, together with deletion, correction and other rights. As the large global companies become test cases, their case processes and outcomes are now critical examples to show how data practices will be applied throughout the corporate environment.
By attending this course, you will be better prepared to carry out a discussion around the new regulation, conform to the parameters, as well as understand the background, updated concepts, principles, terms and definitions used in the GDPR and other laws.
