With fines of up to four percent of annual revenue for data breaches and the clock ticking toward 2018, the GDPR needs to be reckoned with now if organisations are to comply with its new significant mandates for increased data protection.
London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) March 14, 2017
AvePoint, the Microsoft Cloud expert, announced today that it will deliver best practices to prepare for the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) at the upcoming International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) Europe Data Protection Intensive 2017, which takes place from March 14-16 at etc.venues St. Paul’s in London, England. Attendees can visit AvePoint at booth 12 in the exhibit hall throughout the event to learn how organisations worldwide are preparing for the new legislation – set to come into force in May 2018 – as well as learn about solutions and expert advice to help come into compliance with the GDPR.
“With fines of up to four percent of annual revenue for data breaches and the clock ticking toward 2018, the GDPR needs to be reckoned with now if organisations are to comply with its new significant mandates for increased data protection,” said Dana Simberkoff, Chief Compliance and Risk Officer at AvePoint. “Throughout the IAPP Europe Data Protection Intensive, we’ll share how both EU-based and global organisations can prepare for the GDPR through best practices and technology that strike the right balance of collaboration and transparency with data protection and privacy.”
The GDPR marks the beginning of significant changes to how companies doing business in Europe manage and process personal data. It will impact organisations’ privacy compliance programs as well as IT systems and infrastructure. In addition to working closely with customers worldwide to prepare for the legislation, AvePoint has partnered with the Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL) at Hunton & Williams, LLP, a global privacy think tank, to publish the first-ever global benchmark report for the GDPR. IAPP Europe Data Protection Intensive attendees can visit the AvePoint team through the event to obtain a copy of the report and discuss key findings.
Learn How GDPR Compliance is Giving Companies a Competitive Edge in Asia
From 11:15am-12:30pm GMT on Wednesday, March 15, Simberkoff will participate in a panel entitled “Globalising GDPR in Asia”. The session – which also features panelists John Howie, Chief Privacy Officer and Head of Cybersecurity at Huawei Consumer Business Group, and Noriswadi Ismail, Senior Manager of Data Protection and Privacy at EY – will present a case study on how a digital company headquartered in Asia is using GDPR compliance as an advantage over global competitors. The panelists will also discuss GDPR-related trends that could influence data protection in Asia.
