How European GDPR Compliance Enables Enterprises to Both Gain Data Privacy and Improve their Bottom Lines

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 17:58:40 +0000

The next BriefingsDirect security market transformation discussion focuses on the implications of the European Parliament’s recent approval of the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR. This sweeping April 2016 law establishes a fundamental right to personal data protection for European Union (EU) citizens. It gives enterprises that hold personal data on any of these people just two years to reach privacy compliance -- or face stiff financial penalties. But while organizations must work quickly to comply with GDPR, the strategic benefits of doing so could stretch far beyond data-privacy issues alone. Attaining a far stronger general security posture -- one that also provides a business competitive advantage -- may well be the more impactful implication. Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Get the mobile app. Read a full transcript or download a copy. We've assembled a panel of cybersecurity and legal experts to explore the new EU data privacy regulation and discuss ways that companies can begin to extend these needed compliance measures into essential business benefits.

Mon, 02 May 2016 13:49:55 +0000

The next BriefingsDirect IT market analysis discussion explores customer impacts to the global storage market now that the $67 billion Dell-EMC merger deal appears imminent.
