Presentation Abstract

The business world is undergoing a transition in today’s data driven economy.  As the value of data has grown, the awareness of protection, privacy, and liability has become top-of-mind.  For many years, companies were able to acquire, collect and use customer and other personal information without concern for rules, laws, and liabilities.   That’s no longer the case.


The laws and guidelines for consumer data protection and security has varied across different countries and even different industries.   However, the European Union’s 2015 Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) dramatically changed the landscape (and concept) of consumer data ownership and protection. With this landmark legislation, data ownership was taken away from the business entities that had purchased and accumulated the data and given back to the individual consumer.  The EU also defined a significant number of guidelines and responsibilities that companies must follow if they choose to retain and use consumer data.


While the concepts of data ownership, data rights, and usage consent are easily understood, their impact to consumer business can be quite significant.  While most business people think little about their company’s ability to retain consumer interaction history, support cross-sell / upsell strategies, and monetize their data assets– such activities may be significantly hampered by the requirements identified within GPDR.


During this session, Evan Levy will discuss the concepts of data privacy and protection, the details of GDPR, and the tactics necessary to address the issues of GDPR compliance

You will learn:

  • Key concepts of data privacy and protection
  • The impact of data privacy on an existing analytics environment
  • Understanding the essential requirements for GDPR compliance
  • Clarifying the confusion and misinformation about GDPR
  • The 5 basic steps to GDPR compliance
  • The phases and activities involved with Data Privacy/Protection Initiative
