May 5th 2016, the European Parliament finally publsihed the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), which will take effect on May 25th, 2018. With more than 70% of European companies not even aware of this regulation, let alone be ready to comply to the regulation, LSEC and its Members and Partners started with a series of events and activities that will support the strategic definition, implementation of activities and exchanging expert advice that lead to compliance.

Series of events : During these events all different aspects will be investigated in depth. The major differentiator is that we will not only debate the legal implications, but will deep dive into its implementation best practices, building on top of existing processes and procedures (such as ISO 27k, PCI/DSS, Basel II, ....), using existing technologies (implementing the right rules on NGFW, NGIDS, SIEM, Data Leakage in End Protection, Encryption technologies, ....).
