“It was the best of times it was the…”
No really – it was great! What an exciting opportunity we had at CompliancePoint last week as we hosted our workshop in Atlanta, “Navigating the GDPR.” As described at the event our goal was more interactive session than boring lecture, and our speakers and attendees certainly delivered on that promise of collaboration. A special thanks to the CompliancePoint team, speakers from Kelley Drye, SolarWinds, and JLL, as well as more than three dozen brands represented who have kept the conversation going.
In addition to finally learning how to correctly pronounce “pseudonymous” (soo-don-a-mus for inquiring minds) here are a few of my takeaways from the event:
“The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, the second best time is today.” I’d like to encourage all of you who attended or are reading to continue your efforts toward the vision of privacy and compliance. This is a market moving priority and while we all deal with a sense of urgency ahead of enforcement it creates an opportunity for each of us to create immense value in our respective organizations. Whether you started the journey years ago or last week, action today and forward progress is key.
If you have other takeaways, please share, we would love to hear them! We are also happy to continue sharing our experience around how we help find, fix, and manage risk related to privacy and GDPR compliance. With that in mind, be on the look out for follow up materials including updates on future events.
Hope to see you out there!
