Encryption of structured and unstructured data for compliance with the upcoming EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
This year’s Zürcher Tagung of the Information Security Society Switzerland (ISSS) focused on the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union. The updated Swiss data protection law will likely be based on the new EU regulation. GDPR and its impact on organizations in the EU has been widely discussed over the past months. Therefore, the ISSS has decided to focus on challenges with the implementation of the new regulation with a special focus on the Swiss regulatory environment. The event took place on 17 June 2017 in the Hotel Widder in Zürich.
