Recorded Webinar: GDPR Programme Insights for GDPR Readiness

25 January 2018

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25, 2018, requiring financial institutions to meet stringent new rules on managing the personal data of EU residents, and setting astronomic fines for those that fail to comply. The webinar will discuss the broad data management challenges posed by the regulation, the GDPR articles your data management programme will need to consider, and how compliance can best be addressed. Referring to a recent survey conducted by A-Team Group and sponsored by ASG Technologies, the webinar will also explore approaches to the regulation, explain the importance of governance to successful implementation, and offer guidance on new technologies that support compliance.
