Enterprises are collecting and managing more data than ever to create value, making every company a “data” company. But for data to provide value, organizations need to know where it is, who has access to it, how it’s managed, and how it needs to be secured and protected.

With privacy laws such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) forcing companies to know their data, organizations are struggling to navigate the fine line between keeping data for value creation and disposing of it for risk mitigation. With more data being created and collected than ever before, how can organizations strike this delicate balance?

Join the world’s first lawyer and chief data scientist and a data privacy CEO as they discuss how organizations can be enabled by data, not hampered by poor information governance practices.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to gain visibility into your digital environment
  • How a data remediation framework can bring order to information chaos
  • Best practices and lessons learnt from real-life case studies
  • Practical advice for implementing software in support of effective information governance
