Understanding & Leveraging GDPR Regulations to Justify IT Security Spend

05 Jun 2019, 15:20 - 15:45

Strategy Talks

This session draws upon Apricorn’s survey of over 100 IT security professionals which emphasises the security challenges IT executives face when balancing data protection requirements, increased mobile working and GDPR.  The responses highlight regulatory areas to focus on and the most common causes of non-compliance. This session will define key remedial actions organisations should take to protect themselves.

In addition, and with the continued increase of reported data breaches and resultant penalties, GDPR should be seen as an opportunity to be leveraged in the justification of corporate budget allocation.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Understand the key areas of non-compliance identified in the survey
  2. Understand how to leverage GDPR compliance within budget discussions
  3. Understand the scope and benefit of encryption within GDPR
  4. Consider the impact of mobile working within the regulatory environment
  5. Takeaway top tips for GDPR compliance as highlighted by the survey
