Following the success of their Belfast seminar ‘Will GDPR drive your security strategy in 2017?’  IBM and Ward Solutions will co-host a similar event on Friday, February 10 in the Royal College of Physicians, Kildare Street, Dublin 2, aimed at setting Irish organisations on the right path towards compliance.

Ward Solutions recently revealed its 2017 cyber security predictions, chief among which was the finding that most Irish organisations do not yet realise the scale of the challenge to become compliant with the impending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation.

Due to replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive in May 2018, GDPR will aim to offer the same data protection rights across the EU, regardless of where data is processed. Irish companies need to be prepared for the legislation, as they will otherwise be liable for fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20M.

At this seminar, information security and privacy experts from IBM and Ward Solutions will discuss the changes and various implications that GDPR legislation will bring about. They will also highlight the considerations and prioritised Information Security activities that you need to be taking in 2017 in order to become compliant and outline a comprehensive approach to maintaining compliance.

Finally, attendees will hear industry-leading advice on developing information security strategies to tackle increasingly sophisticated cyber-security threats that may put their GDPR preparations and their organisations at significant risk.

This event presents an ideal opportunity for organisations to stay abreast of developments in the information security landscape, and gain awareness of how they can prepare for GDPR legislation.  Admission is free and the seminar will be followed by a light buffet which will present excellent networking opportunities.
