SANS Asia-Pacific Webcast Series- The Global Privacy Law Imperative

Across the globe, all organizations are increasingly expected to respect data privacy. In Europe, this expectation is expressed in the General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR. In Thailand, it is expressed in the new Personal Data Protection Act. California has enacted a Consumer Privacy Act that is set to go into effect in 2020. All organizations are motivated to adopt a culture of data privacy now. Methods for cultivating a privacy culture will be the topic of this webcast. Additionally, data privacy and cybersecurity developments and updates in APAC will be covered, as well as the extra-territorial impact from GDPR and other developments and how it has impacted Asia on a practical level.
