GDPR: What It Means for Analytics and Data Management
Webinar Speaker: David Stodder, Senior Director of Research for BI, TDWI
Date: Monday, April 30, 2018
Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET
The deadline for complying with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is fast approaching. The EU calls it “the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years” – and that’s no exaggeration. Beginning May 25, 2018, organizations that are in non-compliance may face heavy fines, not to mention damage to their reputations. How does this regulation affect the way your organization uses data for analytics and business intelligence? What do you need to do from a data management perspective to ensure compliance – not just by May 25, but into the future?
Join this special TDWI Webinar and learn what steps your organization needs to take to ensure GDPR compliance throughout its analytics, BI, and data management processes. Today, most organizations are focused on conducting data inventories to understand how well they are protecting EU citizens’ sensitive data. And rightly so: Organizations need to know what data they hold. GDPR will require significant changes to how customers’ personal data is stored, processed, and protected.
However, organizations also need transparency into how and why data is being used, how it is being transformed, and whether analytics models properly filter out sensitive data. Organizations need to examine the impact of GDPR’s risk-based approach to data protection on analytics, big data exploration, and BI so that these processes do not violate GDPR requirements.
This Webinar will discuss:
- GDPR: What it is and why it is important to your organization
- Where GDPR most impacts analytics and BI processes
- GDPR and the complexities of multi-platform data architectures (i.e., those that include cloud-based systems, mobile, Hadoop-based data lakes, and other analytics platforms)
- Solving organizational challenges in GDPR compliance
- Technologies and systems that are important to GDPR compliance
