Opening at Dublin’s Convention Centre on 23rd and 24th September 2019, PrivSec Dublin brings CEOs, security chiefs and IT specialists to the forefront of the global data protection debate.
The two-day, content-rich event will deliver a packed agenda of keynote talks and panel debates chaired by industry experts, enabling our 1,000 attendees to fully explore the evolving relationship between data privacy and cyber-security.
Building process, nurturing trust
Since coming into being on May 25th 2018, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation has forced leaders in business and politics to wake up to the importance of data privacy, and to realise the crucial nature of the civil protections that stronger data laws engender.
Similar legal frameworks are evolving in the US, Brazil and Japan, to name but a few countries, where more consumers are having their voices heard with regard to how their personal details are used, stored and shared.
Trust has been a key driver – that vital need to improve confidence between brands and customers. As the touchpoints between consumers and businesses multiply, so responsibility grows on companies to get their data processing houses in order.
Without the proper cyber-security infrastructures in place, data is at risk, and that’s something that all IT chiefs need to bear in mind on compliance journeys.
