GDPR: The Morning After

I hope you all already did you GDPR homework and started at least working on that register, mapped all your personal data (flows) and updated all the data processing agreements… May 25 th 2018 is no end and 100 % compliancy does not exist and is not feasible. So what to do to sustain your compliancy level, what actions are needed on a regular basis.
•      The register needs maintenance: new software, new processing operations.
•      New DPIA’s will be needed, major upgrades in software trigger DPIA update.
•      Yearly all privacy measures taken have to be evaluated.
•      New processors have to be assessed.
•      First set of privacy metrics can be put in place
•      Your competitors change things, the market ask new things, the government comes up with new things, maybe you have to comply with a code of conduct or your clients ask for a GDPR certification
•      Employees’ awareness needs yearly updates
•      Data subjects will start exercising their rights
•      Data breaches have to be handled, communicated and used as input for prevention and improvement.

In this session Bavo will guide you with practical advise on how to cope this, after all you do not want a hangover the day after 

Compliance to Enablement: Enterprise Security Architecture & GDPR

With GDPR looming on the horizon for next year, many European enterprises are focusing on the very real challenges of compliance. In this session, we will show how the SABSA Enterprise Security Architecture Methodology’s focus on enabling the business delivers legal and regulatory compliance in ways that enable the business through improved effectiveness, efficiency and competitive advantage.

We will demonstrate business enablement throughout the SABSA lifecycle: from understanding enterprise goals and objectives; identifying the opportunities and threats related to new regulatory requirements to define enablement and control objectives into using these objectives to drive design, implementation, and operations. The SABSA approach provides the means to deliver business-driven compliance that enables a business to achieve its goals, rather than a compliance-driven business tied-up in regulatory knots
