Breakfast briefing: Don’t let your spreadsheets get in the way of your GDPR compliance

“GDPR is a very real challenge. Managing client data effectively when there is uncertainty on what data is actually scattered across the network, where it may sit (often outside of corporate IT systems) and whether it is managed or protected is a very real and unwieldy challenge that faces all of us.”

Sam Lee, Head of Operational Risk, EMEA, SMBC.

GDPR is the topic du jour with lots of consultants and vendors offering solutions, so the question is where to start?

Join ClusterSeven, Protiviti  and importantly your peers, for a breakfast roundtable to discuss the challenges GDPR brings to organisations. We will discuss the best practice approach you should adopt as well as:

  • GDPR context (what is it and what are the impacts on your business?)
  • Who is/should be in charge?
  • Key points to look at to be GDPR compliant
  • Importance of having an inventory of your critical assets, including spreadsheet
  • How technology can help

The session is also an opportunity for you to hear from your peers including Sam Lee, Head of Operational Risk, EMEA, SMBC and Chris Casswell, Business Manager, Rabobank. Sam and Chris will share their experiences to date and how they are looking to approach GDPR from a people, process and technology perspective.

Places are limited so please do not hesitate to reserve your place.

This event will take place on Friday 15th September at The Botanical Room, One Lombard Street, London from 8.30am to 10.00am.
