Managing data risk in the post-GDPR world

In the middle of May 2019, Compliance and security virtual conference took place and, in case you missed it, we’ve prepared the recap of some sessions for you. One of the presentations was hosted by Silvia Kingsmill, a Partner in the Risk Consulting practice at KPMG Canada, and the National Data Protection and Privacy Leader (yes, you’re not mistaken, very same KPMG from Big Four accounting firms). This session was devoted to the overview of the regulatory landscape. She has spoken about data privacy, cybersecurity, data governance, digital transformation, and what’s more important offered advice on how to reach compliance and improve the security posture of an organization.
