Upcoming RANT Forum to focus on EU Data Protection Regulation

Upcoming RANT Forum to focus on EU Data Protection Regulation

Next week’s RANT Forum will certainly feature one of the hottest topics in the IT security industry right now, as Sarb Sembhi, director of IncomingThought and chair of the ISACA GRA-SC3, will be presenting a talk on the EU Data Protection Regulation as well as other areas such as the state of the privacy policy in the US.

Prism has been a word on the lips of many an IT security specialist over the past month, with former National Security Agency (NSA) worker Edward Snowden revealing its methods of spying on citizens from all over the world.

Sarb is a well-renowned speaker and delivered an interesting talk at the RANT Conference earlier this year, which saw much interaction with the audience. It’s likely that this new talk will get the same reaction, with many professionals having a different point of view on the whole matter.

Since before the EU Data Protection Regulation was made available to the general public in January 2012, all the major US Service providers have been lobbying the EU to water down the provisions to protect EU citizens. Their point of view is that the costs to implement the provisions will hurt the consumer in the long-run.

This lobbying has been one of the most heavily funded of all time and makes you wonder how in light of the Snowden revelations that this might have actually been because it would make things difficult for the NSA, rather than just the providers.

Mr Sarb suggests that if the EU Data Protection Regulation is watered down, then there is no need for the service providers at all as the NSA will be able to store all the data.

This will naturally create a lively debate over the issue and people will be able to express their own opinions on what should be done, or not done, in an open and informal environment.

You can join us for the next London RANT Forum on Wednesday 31st July and as usual there will be plenty of food and networking opportunities on offer.

Those interested in attending this fantastic event should email Gemma Paterson on gpaterson@acumin.co.uk to be added to the guest list.
