Along with NetApp, we have hosted a round table discussion around “Data Privacy and Data Sovereignty: the challenges in the Cloud”.
Special guest speaker for the evening was Sheila FitzPatrick – Global Data Governance Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer at NetApp.
Sheila is one of the world’s leading experts in data privacy laws and works closely with the US Government, Council of the European Union, country-specific data protection agencies in Europe, Asia/Pacific, and America, as well as, National Works Councils, European Works Councils and Law Enforcement Agencies. She provides expertise and hands-on experience in the areas of global data protection compliance, data sovereignty, cybersecurity regulations and obligations, legal issues associated with cloud computing and big data, data breach compliance and management, and records management.
Data privacy is one of the hottest topics in all industries across the globe. Understanding the critical diligence from a data privacy and sovereignty perspective (as opposed to security) will help mitigate the risks as you embark on a cloud journey.
We would like to thank to all the attendees for their valuable contribution to the discussion. Here is where you can read more about the outcome.
