Top 5 Reasons an Outdated Retention Schedule Will Undermine Your GDPR Compliance

Presented by

Tom Mighell, Esq., VP of Delivery Services, Contoural

About this talk

Many of you are no doubt preparing for compliance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements, which have a fast-approaching enforcement date of May 25. A significant component of the regulation will require companies to retain personal data on European residents no longer than is necessary to satisfy the purposes for which it was processed. If your organization does collect and process any personal data, have you justified its retention through your records retention schedule or privacy policies? Companies need an up-to-date records retention policy and schedule to support both deletion and retention of critical information. Join Tom Mighell, Esq., as he discusses the top 5 reasons an outdated retention schedule can undermine your GDPR compliance. Topics include: • Moving away from a “save everything forever” mindset to a “saving smart” approach • Strategies for handling retention requirements of personal data, when you may need to keep the record longer • Building consensus with business users on the importance of deleting personal data when required • Behavior change management approaches for getting employees to comply
