The GDPR deadline is approaching fast. We’re less than a week away from May 25. In light of this, we wanted to share with all of you what we are doing and give you a chance to share your successes (or maybe find a little last-minute motivation).
Let’s start with a little background – Here at (ISC)2, privacy is a hallmark of our mission to inspire a safe and secure cyber world. We see GDPR as an opportunity to enhance privacy and data protections for ALL (ISC)2 members and candidates – not just those in the European Union.
From email communications to privacy policies, we know GDPR affects many organizational operations. We’re committed to full compliance, and we’ve revisited and made enhancements to our processes to ensure we’re always acting in accordance with the strictest regulations.
We’re proud to have always been committed to treating our members and candidates with respect to their privacy and personal communication preferences. This includes only sending digital communications they’ve given their explicit consent to receive. In honor of GDPR, we revisited our processes to ensure we continue to provide transparency for all both (ISC)² and candidates.
We’ll continue to improve upon our processes and policies after the May 25 GDPR deadline. We strive to earn and maintain the trust of our members and our candidates. At (ISC)², security is our purpose, people our passion, and that is true across all we do.
Now we turn it over to you! Tell us how things are progressing for you. Need a little inspiration on what to share? Here are a few questions to think about: What is your organization doing to prepare for GDPR? How long have you been preparing? Do you feel like your organization is ready for the deadline? We’d love to hear your experiences, and any tips you may want to share with your infosec and cybersecurity peers.
