  • U.S. Banks and Data Privacy: CCPA, GDPR, and Beyond Nov 21 2019 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jill Reber & Steve Ernst, (Primitive Logic), Tanya Madison (TD Bank), Ron Whitworth (SunTrust)
    Gartner includes data ethics and privacy on their list of the top 10 strategic technology trends of 2019, placing these issues on the same level as AI-driven development, blockchain, and edge computing.

    With the enforcement of GDPR in May 2018, the enactment of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) one month later, and other state and federal data privacy proposals not far behind, financial institutions of all sizes are having to devote time, personnel, and resources to the task of getting a handle on their data practices.

    This webinar will explore how these regulations — and new data privacy laws appearing around the world — are changing the way financial institutions gather, process, and share personal data. Learn key highlights of GDPR and CCPA readiness, steps to consider in approaching expanded definitions of personal data and individual privacy rights, triggers that can impact compliance status, and business benefits of aligning with data privacy requirements.

  • Securing Contact Center Payments: Navigating the California Consumer Privacy Act Nov 21 2019 9:00 am UTC 41 mins
    Aaron Lumnah, Senior Manager, Demand Generatio, Semafone
    With rates of card-not-present payment fraud continuing to grow higher every year, payment and data security has never been a higher priority for organizations. Protecting customer data is of utmost importance, especially with governments and regulatory bodies increasingly turning their attention to these issues and producing legislation to implore companies to take additional security measures. Contact centers are a part of the organization particularly fraught with responsibility, processing mountains of payments and finding themselves to be a favorite target for hackers and fraudsters. Because of this, contact centers face a myriad of laws and regulations governing the way they treat this data, such as the PCI DSS for those taking payments, and the recently passed California Consumer Privacy Act, among many others.

    Register now for an insightful webinar where you'll learn:
    - The top data security regulations, laws, and standards bodies affecting contact center data governance, like the California Consumer Privacy Act and the PCI DSS
    - How to comply with sometimes competing regulatory requirements and resolve conflicting stipulations
    - How to achieve compliance more simply and cost effectively
