The Panel


May 2018 marked a change for privacy and cyber security professionals. When the EU’s GDPR went into effect, it set off a chain reaction around the globe as more countries released their own revamped privacy laws. That same month, NIST released a significant update to its Risk Management Framework (RMF) that included a greater focus on the role of data privacy in cyber security. In late 2018, a second revision of the RMF was published.

These changes are a result of an industry-wide shift pushing for the integration of strong privacy principles with robust security measures to ensure the protection of customer, patient, and employee data. During this panel, experts from privacy, security, and risk management backgrounds will discuss the reasons behind this shift and how to successfully integrate these critical areas of risk management. This discussion will include a focus on:

  • The relationships between cyber security standards and frameworks like NIST SP 800-53 and ISO 27001 and new global privacy legislation like the GDPR.

  • How NIST connects key privacy components of the RMF and the measures found in Cybersecurity Framework (CSF).

  • Building a unified framework that aligns privacy principles and security measures to ensure the protection of personal data and compliance with key regulations.

  • The impact of this shift on risk management professionals and what you can do as an individual to adapt to this growing trend.
