Getting ahead of the exposure landscape for data privacy and security risks and their attendant regulatory compliance mandates has always been a challenge. Staying ahead of that evolving threat landscape is even more challenging. Join Arthur J. Gallagher and ID Experts as they present a 3-part webinar series during January, February and March addressing the following cutting edge topics the market has been asking for experts to address pragmatically with an eye toward real-time guidance: Preventative Services and Tools to consider getting in place before an event occurs; GDPR Planning in light of actual scenarios across organizations today and what the insurance industry thinks of the evolving GDPR compliance exposure; and lastly how to navigate the alphabet soup sea of compliance challenges between HIPAA, NYDFS and GDPR. Expert legal, forensic, underwriting and claims perspectives will examine and compare/contrast the compliance burdens your organization will not be unique in grappling with during 2018 and going forward.

Part 2: GDPR Planning: Actual Scenarios; Insurance Industry Response - February 22nd, 2018

Actual GDPR planning scenarios underway in organizations today were examined within the scope of what U.S. organizations are subject to GDPR and how these scenarios may translate to best practice tips in preparation for the May 2018 final implementation of arguably the largest global data privacy and security regulation to impact businesses in all industries.
