How GDPR is a Prime Opportunity for Data Professionals
In this session from the 2017 ObservePoint Analytics Summit, Adam Corey unpacks how to leverage GDPR and the work required to help establish data as a priority in your organization, improve data quality standards/ownership, and build trust with your users.
Why this subject matters:
We’re speeding towards to the fourth industrial revolution like a bullet – from Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality to the Internet of Things – many companies are embracing digital innovation and reaping the rewards. But there’s a vital consideration that has been trailing behind – data protection. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – a new law that will affect all companies dealing with the data of EU citizens – is due to come into force in May 2018 and it will give individuals unprecedented rights over their personal data.
But beyond the confusion, there’s a great opportunity with GDPR for data professionals. This session will unpack how to leverage GDPR and the prep work required to help establish data as a priority in your organization, improve data quality standards and ownership, and build greater trust with your users.
In this session, we review the state of the industry, discuss the impact of current and future rulings on short term projects and propose 5 high-level areas of focus to prepare your business for upcoming regulations.
