GDPR for RIM Professionals

Speaker: Thom Whittemore, Iron Mountain

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance is a top priority for companies doing business in the EU, but GDPR has far-reaching implications around the globe. Complying with the GDPR will require a company to reach into its Information Technology, Records Management, and Line of Business functions to make compliance a reality.

This presentation is intended as an introduction to the GDPR that attorneys, privacy specialists, and members of the IG team can all understand and use as a primer for GDPR compliance. Topics include:

  • GDPR overview,
  • Risks of non-compliance,
  • Impact on US organizations,
  • Safe Harbor and Privacy Shield,
  • the role of RIM in GDPR compliance.
