Broken fence leading to somewhere

On April 10, 2018 Oyster Consulting hosted a webinar discussing the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), designed to protect the rights and data of European Union citizens, that takes effect May 25, 2018.  This regulation is applicable, regardless of who holds the data or where that data is being held.

Topics discussed included:

  • The GDPR and Who is Affected
  • Protections & Data Breaches
  • Mass Marketing
  • Enforcement
  • What Firms Should Be Doing Now

Oyster can assist your firm in  becoming GDPR-compliant by:

  • performing an assessment and gap analysis of your policies and procedures, controls, cybersecurity and technology;
  • assisting with communications plans and third party due diligence;
  • serving as outsourced Data Protection Officer (DPO); and,
  • developing testing procedures, risk assessments, and staff training.
