EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) webinars

The Regulation also imposes fines up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (whichever is higher), grants extended rights to data subjects and allows data subjects to bring legal action against organisations in case of data breach.
From 25 May 2018, the Regulation will impose fines up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (whichever is higher), grant extended rights to data subjects and allow data subjects to bring legal action against organisations in case of data breach.

Compliance solutions: How can penetration testing support your GDPR project?
Although many organisations are familiar with the concept of penetration testing, they often struggle to understand how to fit it into their overall General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance project, or even how to get started. Organisations could still face fines for any poor decisions they make before the Regulation is enforced, so it is important to properly ascertain vulnerabilities and test and apply patches now.
Organisations should intensify the implementation of information security controls and technologies, including IT security monitoring, testing and measuring in compliance with Article 32 of the GDPR.

In this webinar, IT Governance will provide an overview of how penetration testing can effectively support organisations in achieving GDPR compliance. Join IT Governance’s founder and executive chairman, Alan Calder, and head of technical services, David Grove, where they will discuss:
- Penetration testing and its role in demonstrating GDPR compliance;
- Implementing technical measures to ensure data security and compliance with Article 32 of the GDPR;
- Why penetration tests are vital in uncovering vulnerabilities before criminals do; and
- How to meet legislative and regulatory requirements and achieve an integrated approach with standards such as the PCI DSS, ISO 27001 and the GDPR.

How can an ISO 27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS) help law firms achieve GDPR compliance?
The legal sector is a popular target for cyber attacks. With such a wealth of confidential information on offer, this is not surprising. According to PwC’s 2017 Law Firms’ Survey , the majority of law firms have experienced a security incident in the past 12 months, with phishing attacks being the most common.
Now that 25 May 2018 deadline has passed, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in force and law firms must disclose breaches that compromise the rights of data subjects.
Many law firms are now implementing ISO 27001-compliant information security management systems (ISMSs) to ease the workload of regular audits and better manage their sensitive information in compliance with the GDPR. This proves to clients that they take information security seriously and gives them a competitive advantage.

The responsibilities of controllers and processors under the GDPR and how ongoing staff awareness can support compliance
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) creates a significant number of responsibilities and obligations for controllers and processors. Data controllers must determine the purpose for which data is collected and implement control measures appropriate to the risk to ensure ongoing compliance. Data processors will also be assigned a set of obligations, such as processing data in line with the GDPR’s principles, notifying the data controller and reporting a data breach.
