Speaking at the upcoming annual Global Cyber Security Leaders 2
Speaking at the upcoming annual Global Cyber Security Leaders 2016 summit, from his unique position, Selman will give an insight presentation on the Supply Chain Assurance: Why it Matters and How Defence has addressed the Challenge.
Given the looming changes facing Europe following the Brexit vote, how will data protection and the cyber security industry be affected in Europe and abroad?
I don’t think it will be, the planned EU General Data Protection Regulation will still impact on the UK, both because we will be doing business with suppliers and organisations in the EU who will still be governed by GDPR and because the ICO has made it clear that the changes GDPR proposes are those they think the UK should adopt as best practice regardless.
