EU Personal Data Protection (GDPR) Seminar

Learn why GDPR matters and how to get ready for it. SAS Institute together with Knowit invites you to a half-day seminar addressing the challenges and describing the specific processes, organizational changes, and technology that can help an organization fully comply with GDPR – by 2018 and beyond.

Soon you will have to find, evaluate and categorize your company’s stored Personal Data (PD) in what may be thousands of databases, and create new processes in order to be compliant with the new regulation.

Under the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), every consumer and citizen has the right to know how PD is used – as well as the right to have this data completely erased upon demand. Naturally, this means that organizations storing consumer data must be vigilant and rigorous in protecting such data.

Protecting such personal information and consumer integrity has become a high priority for the EU. The EU values consumer integrity to such a degree that companies who do not comply with GDPR may be fined up to 20 million EUR or 4% of annual global turnover.
