THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)

THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)
28 - 29 MARCH 2019 CORAL BEACH HOTEL BEIRUT - LEBANON


BACKGROUND

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the latest in the long line of privacy-related EU initiatives. In fact, the European Union has always maintained “consumer-first” approach regarding privacy. However, this dedication to privacy and all round consent can be overwhelming and downright challenging for the users.
A predominant GDPR challenge for any financial institution is the sheer scope of the work to be done in order to be fitting according to the updated guidelines. It is humongous and it needs very delicate and thorough approach.
Overall, GDPR implementing challenges can be divided into technical and organizational.
The imposing number of requirements that constitutes GDPR compliance is designed to increase accountability of those who process personal data. This is made specifically for means of making the whole process as transparent and trustworthy as possible.
You have to ensure that the policies for personal data usage, consent, rectification, access, deletion are composed according to the regulations.
Also, cooperation with the third parties under GDPR is considered a key risk and as such it must be reassessed and adapted accordingly. The challenge lies in the fact that the GDPR rule is extremely process-driven. While it is designed to improve such practices as decision-making and risk assessment - GDPR also adds another layer to them and thus complicated the already complicated process.
There are several key elements to pay attention to as you embark on GDPR initial assessment and Implementation:
• What data is collected?
• What are the sources of the data gathering?
• Where is the data stored?
• How is it used?
• Who has access to what data? For how long?
And the list goes on . . .
