The GDPR Effect on North America and the Landmines Currently Being Planted
Perri Marketing Inc. CMO Tony Perri will be speaking at Cyber Security Atlanta this year with his talk titled, “The GDPR Effect on North America and the Landmines Currently Being Planted.” Tony studied this piece of legislation extensively before its go-live date, and now that it’s here American businesses need to pay attention to its ripple effects.
The current national data privacy law was enacted in 1974, long before we had the world wide web. The current General Data Protection Regulation from the European Union is an update to the Data Protection Directive of 1995, another statute made obsolete by the explosion of accessible data from the Internet.
The GDPR is a monumental piece of legislation out of the EU that is creating a domino effect of states’ legislation in the US. This session will review the GDPR’s effect here in the U.S., what’s on the radar for U.S. legislation and a use case of a breach that spans pre- and post-GDPR, where the fine could be $640k or $22 million. With this new E.U. legislation, data security compliance and auditing will never be the same.
