Watch It Now!

The GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, went into effect in May of 2018 and has spurred many questions for IT teams trying to get up to speed on what the regulation requires and how to achieve compliance in the most efficient way.

Join this webcast with John McLeod, AlienVault's CISO, and Dan Stocker, Coalfire's Practice Director of Cloud & Tech, to walk through frequently asked questions and best practices for GDPR compliance. John and Dan will share what they've learned in their collective time spent immersed in GDPR compliance efforts as well as answer your burning questions. The presenters will cover:

  • What is GDPR and who is affected?
  • How does GDPR impact organizations outside the EU?
  • What is meant by personal data in the context of GDPR?
  • What are some of the steps and effective tools you need to comply?
  • What should your incident response plan look like in the event of a breach?
  • What happens to companies that fail to comply?

We'll wrap up with a brief demo of the AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) platform to illustrate how AlienVault can help accelerate and simplify your path to compliance.
