The UK information commissioner's office (ICO) can now fine up to £500K for data leaks. This may sound like bad news for businesses, but for IT security managers, it can help to make the case for new security investments.
GDPR and the UK: sorting fact from fiction
How will data protection enforcement change in the UK once the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes in to force? Will the GDPR come into force at all, with the UK planning to leave the EU?
Insight can be gained from looking at how the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has enforced the existing 1998 Data Protection Act in recent years. Quocirca will be presenting analysis of recent ICO actions at a webinar on July 11th 2017.
Join Quocirca and RiskIQ to find out how many data leaks the ICO has recorded in the last two years and how many have led to actions being taken in the form of fines as well as prosecutions, enforcement notices and undertakings.
The biggest challenge with GDPR for many will be ensuring the new, more stringent administrative requirements are met. These will enable the ICO’s to act in many new areas. The webinar will discuss these and how you can avoid the ICO’s attention by better understanding how and where personally identifiable information (PII) is being processed in the name of your organisation.
