Any organization conducting business in Europe or storing personal data on EU residents will have two years to ensure that their data processing activities comply with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that was entered into force on May 24, 2016. Although non-compliance with the new regulation can cost an organization €20 million (more than $22 million) or four percent of their global annual revenue, many U.S.-based companies are unprepared to make the necessary changes to their systems and operations.
The webinar, "How to Benefit from Microsoft Office 365 and Maintain Control of Your Data" will provide an overview of the EU data protection reform with a focus on the GDPR and how its more stringent requirements to protect personal data for Europeans will impact companies doing business in the region. The discussion will center on organizations currently deployed in or considering a move to an Office 365 environment.
Lane and de Rooij will detail the new challenges of the GDPR, and other country-specific data residency laws, pose for organizations responsible for securing Office 365 data. The session will also map the security controls available through Microsoft for data locality in Office 365 to the new regulations and highlight the gaps that can cause non-compliance issues.
Attendees will learn:
- The most commonly encountered EU and U.S. data security and privacy regulations
- What Office 365 secures and the areas organizations need to augment to be compliant with the GDPR's data residency and privacy regulations
- How to establish security controls that can quickly adapt to new and evolving laws and regulations
- The cloud data protection solutions available to help organizations comply with the data residency and privacy requirements
