By spring next year, organizations around the world will need to have incident response and data breach notification processes to meet new legal requirements. Both the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Network and Information Systems (NIS) Directive bring stricter and far-reaching data breach reporting and incident response obligations.
These legal instruments require organizations to implement robust processes that include effective reporting tools and procedures, clear notification protocols, and – most importantly – a clear incident management response plan.
As part of our continued support to help organizations comply with the GDPR and NIS Directive, IT Governance will deliver a webinar to help professionals get a basic understanding of the risk-based security measures and incident notification requirements that the Regulation and Directive impose.
The GDPR and NIS Directive: Risk-based security measures and incident notification requirements will be delivered on May 4, 2017, from 10:00 am (ET)/7:00 am (PT).
Led by Adrian Ross, an experienced data protection and information security consultant at IT Governance, the webinar will provide advice on the new requirements that organizations need to implement in order to comply with the GDPR and NIS Directive.
The webinar aims to equip organizations that provide ‘essential services’ and operate in sectors such as energy, transport, banking, financial market infrastructure, health, water, and digital infrastructure with a comprehensive understanding of the GDPR and NIS Directive. It provides a comprehensive overview of:
- The key implications of the GDPR
- The technical and organizational measures that organizations need to adopt to comply with the NIS Directive
- The GDPR and NIS Directive data breach notification requirements
- The risk-based security measures needed to create cyber resilience
- The policies and procedures required for breach notification and incident response
If you can’t make the webinar, it will be available to download shortly after it finishes.
