Security: Digital Privacy & GDPR

AITP is excited to host Ryan Edge, Solutions Engineer at OneTrust, to lead the discussion for our May dinner meeting. Our topic this month is Security. There is so much out there on this topic, but one think really stands out – specifically for the month of May – is GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation. GDPR was approved by the EU Parliament on April 14th, 2016 and will officially be in place on May 25th, 2018.

You may be asking yourself why and EU regulation has any bearing on US operations, but it does – and not in a small way! The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. GDPR extends the scope of EU data protection law to all foreign companies processing data of EU residents. This essentially means that ANY organization who is processing personal data for EU residents must follow this regulation to do business in the EU – or do business with companies who are doing business with EU – and so on, and so on…….

As a Solutions Engineer for OneTrust, Ryan Edge truly understands the far-reaching implications of this regulation.  He will provide an overview of data protection in general and the GDPR, including:

  • What is it?
  • Which organizations does it apply to?
  • What role do IT professionals plan?

Registration is open now, and seating – while plentiful – will be limited, so do not wait to sign up for what will be a “can’t miss” evening! If you’ve missed our first few meetings in 2018, I also wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that AITP is “back home.”  We’ve signed a new agreement with the folks at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia, bringing back our meetings to this wonderful location.
