Networking and Morning Coffee Break

GDPR – Not What, or Why; but How?

  • Ian West Vice President – Analytics & Information Management Practice , Cognizant
  • Andrew Joss Head of Industry Consulting , Informatica


In a recent study a quarter of UK businesses are no longer preparing for GDPR as they mistakenly believe they won’t have to comply because of Brexit, but businesses should not confuse GDPR with Brexit. For many, GDPR will be a critical business issue with the potential to impact many organisations handling the personal information of European Union residents and, potentially, it has truly global implications. And GDPR also has the opportunity to be much more beneficial. If approached correctly, GDPR could enable organisations to become truly customer centric and help build digital trust with their consumers. With the deadline fast approaching, and for many a lot of work to do, the countdown has begun! Are you ready for GDPR? In this session, Cognizant and Informatica together share their thinking about not what, or why, but how you could accelerate your GDPR initiative.

The Evolving Role of a DPO: Integrating the Role into Your Business

  • Samantha Simms Director, Global Privacy Officer, Carlson Wagonlit Travel
  • João Barreiro Associate Vice President Chief Privacy & Data Protection Officer , HCL Technologies Ltd.
  • Anne-Claire Dubois Group Legal Counsel & Privacy Officer, Time Out Group


Article 37 of the EU GDPR now has a designation that data protection officers must be appointed for all public authorities, and where the core activities of the controller or the processor involve “regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects on a large scale.” Depending on the size and scope of your organisation, the role of the DPO can vary. In some cases the DPO wears numerous hats beyond data privacy and in other instances, the DPO’s role focusses soley on data protection. In this session, we’ll take a closer look at how those already in the role are seeing it evolve and
provide clarity to those that are new to the role.

Minimising GDPR Scope and Compliance


  • As enterprises leverage cloud and SaaS applications, GDPR adds an additional layer of complexity
  • Data Controllers are ultimately responsible of the protection of PII and sensitive PII of Data Subjects
  • GDPR ‘Centralisation’ and ‘Privacy by Design’ concepts are critical best practice recommendations
  • Learn how to address such principles and how this removes the need for ‘data breach notification’

  • Simon Hall Data Privacy Officer and Privacy SME Ethics and Compliance, Asda
  • Titta Penttilä Group Privacy Officer, Head of Privacy, Group Security & Privacy, Telia Company
  • Dave Horton Privacy Engineer, OneTrust


The PIA is a valuable tool for assessing your organisation’s data privacy risk. While most
organisations are conducting some form of privacy assessment, some in the privacy
community are still struggling to find the bandwidth and resources necessary to get the
ball rolling. Even on a limited budget, there are steps that can be taken to conduct a basic

protection community is in an era of great change. The need for a clear set of standards
to aid privacy professionals in their collaboration with regulators and vendors alike is more
important now than ever before.
