Chief Data and Data Protection Officers are realizing the benefits that information governance brings in establishing policies and defining the process of how data is collected and used, and enforcing it to ensure the organization remains compliant with each new regulation - CSO and CTO Rex Ahlstrom
McLean, VA (PRWEB) September 18, 2017
BackOffice Associates, the worldwide leader in information governance and data stewardship solutions, announced today that it will host a live webinar, “GDPR is Here: Are You Ready?,” featuring General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Expert and Forrester Analyst Enza Iannopollo and BackOffice Associates Chief Strategy and Technology Officer Rex Ahlstrom, on September 26 at 11:00 a.m. ET.
Examining the implications of the upcoming GDPR regulation, which goes into effect May 2018, Iannopollo and Ahlstrom will share recommendations on developing a sound GDPR compliance roadmap and prioritizing information governance initiatives to execute a successful compliance strategy.
“GDPR and other compliance-driven regulations mean organizations must make changes in business processes and policies in order to avoid steep financial penalties and other intrusive enforcement actions,” said Ahlstrom. “Increasingly, Chief Data Officers and Data Protection Officers are realizing the benefits that information governance brings in establishing policies and defining the process of how data is collected and used, as well as enforcing it to ensure the organization remains compliant with each new regulation.”
