The speaker will cover how privacy and cybersecurity cannot be isolated from each other. More laws are being passed and implemented in different countries to protect privacy, and cybersecurity is a vital part of all these laws. Practitioners must know that they have legal and technical responsibilities to keep the data safe and secure the IT infrastructure. The speaker will also include interesting real-life case studies of my clients.
