GDPR - are you ready?

Presented by

Chris Hodson, EMEA CISO, Zscaler

About this talk

On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect. Are you properly prepared? According to Gartner, not many will be: “By the end of 2018, over 50% of companies affected by the GDPR will not be in full compliance with its requirements". You don’t have to be one of these companies. Join Chris Hudson, EMEA CISO, as he discusses some suggested steps for compliance with the GDPR (legal, technical, and organisational). We will also discuss: One of the first steps is to recognise that GDPR isn't just an IT problem — it affects almost every department — and building a cross-functional team with goals and clear lines of communication is critical. Specifically, we will be discussing the legal, technical and organisational challenges and roadblocks to GDPR compliance, addressing questions such as: With May 25, 2018 not far away, what should the GDPR project plan look like? Who should be on the GDPR team? This isn't just an IT challenge. What should the priorities be? Data flows, reasons for data retention. What security controls should be in place? Encryption, logging, access control, authentication, data mapping. What about Shadow IT? We don't know what we don't know. GDPR is a big, important undertaking. Your ability to ensure that all departments and stakeholders are working together with the IT team will be a key element of compliance. We hope you will join us.

Back in the day when your users were all on the network and your applications resided in your physical data center, it made sense to establish a secure perimeter around your network. But those days are over, the perimeter is gone, and network security is all but irrelevant. Instead, you need to put your defenses and controls where the connections occur— the internet — so that every connection is fast and secure, no matter how or where users connect or where their applications reside. By moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud and untethering employees from their desks, you can realize tremendous advantages in productivity, agility, and cost containment. With our 100% cloud built secure platform, Zscaler can help you make the move to the cloud, securely.
