GDPR and the Supplier IT Risk Landscape – Listen to DVV Solutions ILTA INSIGHT 2017 Panel Discussion

One Step Ahead of Uncertainty:
GDPR and the Supplier IT Risk Landscape 

Following DVV Solutions’ participation at ILTA INSIGHT 2017 we are pleased to share the recording of our panel discussion on GDPR and the implications for managing Supplier IT Risk:ILTA Insight Supplier IT Risk Recording


Is GDPR a blessing and a curse? There is inevitably a lot of noise generated around GDPR and its enforcement on May 25, 2018, and the new, larger maximum fines and penalties the ICO may impose for data breaches and misuse. However, it is also a timely reminder of the increasing need to constantly manage and review the governance of privacy and security applied to Customer AND Employee Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and the associated networks and infrastructure through which critical business data flows.

In this session we discuss some of the more practical aspects of GDPR and how it applies to data handling in the legal sector and throughout the data supply chain – for both internal and cloud-based service models.

We investigate why many organisations are still yet to fully address the inherent risks of outsourced business models and third-party relationships and look at some of the best-practice due diligence that can be applied to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of Third Party Supplier IT Risk Management.

The panel also debates whether Third Party Supplier IT Risk Assessment and Management has to be seen as a huge burden and assess the pro’s and con’s of typical internal processes, deploying automation software and adopting a fully managed service model.
