Navigating Complex Employee DSARs (Sponsored by Exterro)

Responding effectively to data subject access requests (DSARs) can be challenging. Complex requests, especially from current or former employees, often require handling a wide range of data (often sensitive) across the enterprise.

Whether it’s wading through the review process of thousands of emails, baring the cost of external counsel, or working with IT to ensure you have all the personal data you need from various (tricky to collect / legacy / remote) data sources, employee DSARs can soon become an extremely challenging exercise to fulfil.

Join our expert panel to discuss key considerations when responding to employee DSARs and how technology can help fulfil complex requests.

Host: Steve Wright, Partner, Privacy Culture

Operationalising Data Retention to Reduce Data Risks (Sponsored by Exterro)

It is estimated that up to 70% of an organisation’s unstructured data is redundant, obsolete and trivial, which creates enormous risk to potential cyber threats, as well as exposure to regulations such as the GDPR for non-compliance in handling and deleting data accordingly. Data you do not have cannot be breached, it isn't discoverable in litigation or investigations, and it doesn't require any efforts to store, secure, or manage effectively.

Join our expert panel for an enlightening discussion, plus essential tips and techniques to keep your house in order. We’ll cover a recap on the Data Retention requirements in the GDPR, strategies for operationalising data retention and minimisation, and practical hints and tips from our expert panel.

Speakers Include:

Host: Jennifer Riggins, Tech Marketing Consultant, Tech Storyteller, SEO Copywriter, eBranding Ninja, Freelance Marketing and Creative Services
