Subject Access Rights: GDPR Implementation Guide

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) grants data subjects new rights including: data portability, access, erasure or “right to be forgotten”, and rectification. For data controllers, there are specific record keeping requirements around the time to respond, the ability to request an extension, the requirement to validate the identity, and securely transmitting the response to the individual. This session addresses how organisations can get ahead in the new era of privacy and increased data subject rights with privacy management software to streamline and automate requests, validation, and notification processes.

Single Subject Search: the Missing Link for GDPR Compliance

The big day has come. GDPR is here! EU regulators will bring investigations and enforcement actions. Class actions are being filed. Privacy advocacy groups are mobilizing EU residents to exercise their newfound individual privacy rights.

Companies that fail to respond timely or properly to individual rights requests may sustain significant fines, penalties, judgments and severe reputational risk. Complying with many of these rights requires an understanding of who the requestor is across multiple, messy databases. This can be incredibly challenging. Single subject search can help.

What you will learn:

  • What are the new GDPR individual rights
  • The difficulties in responding to individual rights requests
  • Why leading privacy experts are concerned about SAR compliance
  • How single subject search helps with GDPR compliance

A Day in the Life of Corporate Counsel

What keeps corporate counsel up at night? Surveys consistently show that corporate counsel regularly loses sleep over global regulatory compliance, data security and employment issues. The biggest nightmare, however, may be finding the budget and resources to keep up with ever-changing regulations and manage the workload of the legal department.

This fast-paced session will offer 10-15 opportunities of live stories from in-house counsel participants, who will share two to three-minute case studies from their own experiences that how their in-house counsel job profiles bring up the business growth for their respective organizations. They will also share the challenges they face and how do they find the solutions. Do they partner with law firms and service providers to solve their issues – if yes; to what extent it remains intact.

You can look forward to digging into the experiences, new challenges and resolutions shared by in-house counsel participants at the ConfEx.
