GDPR Readiness Seminar – The Time Is Now

GDPR Readiness Seminar – The Time Is Now

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect on 25 May 2018, and organisations found to be in breach of the GDPR can be fined up to Euro20 million or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is higher.  

Many organisational leaders are not aware of GDPR or do not think that they need to comply with the regulation. Do not make this strategic error. The regulation does apply if your organisation obtains, processes, stores or uses data of EU citizens, and even if you market to EU clients. GDPR also expands the definition of “personal data” to include online identifiers such as IP address, cookies and so forth. Even if your organisation already complies with Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Act, there are gaps between the two regulations that need to be managed.

Creating Strategic Value - More Than Just Compliance   

In today's digitised world of smartphones, social media, electronic banking and global e-commerce, we believe that efforts taken to comply with personal data protection regulations can create a competitive advantage for your organisation, in securing the confidence of consumers, clients, investors, stakeholders, etc.  These efforts can also help to manage the reputational risk of cybercrime attacks and personal data theft more effectively. 

Protiviti, Microsoft and Straits Interactive, a specialist and authorised trainer on Data Protection, partnered to jointly offer a free seminar on the steps you can take towards GDPR readiness in the upcoming weeks until 25 May.
