On this occasion Igor Urra, Secretary General of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce, received attendees on behalf of our institution and introduced the speakers Ricardo Ena, UK Regional Manager at Technorizon, and Yao Trinh, Associate at SCA Ontier.
Ricardo began with a brief introduction of Technorizon by explaining the company’s values and main services in the field of IT Security.
After this brief introduction he explained what the new GDPR regulation is, who has to comply with it and when it will be enforced. He also explained the principals of the new regulation which include Lawfulness, Fairness and Transparency. These refer to the validation and legitimation of the data and the Storage Limitation principle that how data should be stored.
Ricardo went on to describe the existing approaches to this new regulation and explained the essential controls, policies and actions for IT Risk Management. He concluded by advising attendees on how to prepare for the new GDPR.
The event then moved on to the Q&A session, in which Yao of SCA Ontier responded to the guest’s legal related questions. Once the session finished, participants had the opportunity to network over breakfast while sharing their thoughts and discussing further the subject matter of the talk.
