25 May has come and gone and the GDPR is now effective. Many organizations struggled to comes to terms with the enormity of the task of addressing the regulation and mistakenly saw 25 May as a deadline rather than a milestone in a larger piece of work.
During this presentation Tim Clements will share some insights into the benefits of aligning GDPR with existing organizational strategies, as well as outline some existing standards that can assist in establishing the framework needed to ensure ongoing compliance with GDPR and other applicable laws and regulations.
Furthermore, we will look at the operational aspects of two key GDPR requirements, “Data Protection Impact Assessment” and “Data Protection by Design and by Default”.[/vc_cta]
This Talk first looks at some of the economic reasons behind the revolt – such as the lack of real wage growth – and then at the longer run explanations for this, in particular the varying pattern of productivity growth (or recently the lack of such growth) and the critical question of how equally the benefits of such growth have been distributed, in an era of generally weakened trade unions and the growth of the ‘gig’ (self-employed) economy. The Talk will examine some possible good news on one of the two fronts – a digital transformation of manufacturing that will amount to a ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’. The Talk will conclude by looking at who might reap the benefits.[/vc_cta]
