The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be a big business driver for security solutions in many industries this year. However, the size of the potential fines and the reputation damage of a reported violation could have a negative effect on business digital transformation initiatives. Is it truly possible for GDPR to be a business enabler?
In order to find out, McAfee commissioned a survey of 800 senior business professionals from eight countries and a range of industries. We uncovered insights about their top data protection concerns, strategies around GDPR and other regulatory developments, and how enterprises think data privacy can create competitive advantage. We wanted to know: What drives their decisions and investments in data management? Do they place their faith in cloud providers? Are they prepared to meet regulatory mandates and exceed customer expectations?
In this webcast Raj Samani, Chief Scientist and McAfee Fellow and Emma Wright, Commercial Technology Partner at Kemp Little discuss the findings of our study as well as pose the questions
Is the culture of your organization ready for GDPR?
Do you have the right people, processes, and technology in place to adhere to data privacy and residency regulations?
Will GDPR provide a competitive advantage or cause your business to suffer from brand damage?
