General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
and Vendor Risk Management

Thursday, April 19, 2018, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Hanover Manor
26 Eagle Rock Ave., East Hanover, NJ

Has your organization taken the time to understand how the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will impact your business? GDPR is the new legal framework in EU and will be effective on May 25, 2018 for all the countries in EU. GDPR will change data protection requirements globally - not just in Europe. If you’re in a U.S. based multinational enterprise doing business in the EU, non-compliant companies will face hefty fines of up to €20 million or 4 percent of global annual revenue, whichever is greater. Non-EU companies will be a particular target of these higher fines. It is vital to ensure that all aspects of the flow of personal data are assessed and evaluated for compliance with the regulation. In addition, you should fully understand your level of exposure to potential violations with your current security posture and how you can reduce those risks.

This session will cover what is GDPR, the impact of GDPR in Europe and US, the use of the sector based risk approach in assessing GDPR impact in businesses, and enabling GDPR leveraging GRC technologies.

Financial Cybersecurity Conference 2018

Wednesday, May 30, 2018, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Stevens Institute of Technology
Babbio Center, Room 122
Hoboken, NJ

The Stevens Institute of Technology, in partnership with NJ ISACA, will host the 2018 FinCyberSec - Financial Cybersecurity Conference at the Stevens Hoboken campus. This one-day conference will explore technical, regulatory, process, and human dimensions of cyber threats faced by financial systems and markets.

Financial cybersecurity is a complex, systemic risk challenge that includes technological and operational elements. The interconnectedness of financial systems and markets creates dynamic, high-risk environments where organizational security is greatly impacted by the level of security effectiveness of partners, counterparties and other external organizations. The result is a high-risk environment with a growing need for cooperation between enterprises that are otherwise direct competitors. There is a new normal, one of continuous attack pressures that produce unprecedented enterprise threats that must be met with an array of countermeasures.
