Base @ LS&H AVG/GDPR Ready

Date: Tuesday 15 May, 2018

Location: CIC_Rotterdam – Stationsplein 45 –  3013 AK Rotterdam – The Netherlands


On 25th of May 2018 the European General Data Protection Regulation will be implemented. Join a session focusing on GDPR / AVG regulation coming on line in a few weeks and how in particularly it affects the Healthcare / Lifesciences sectors. LS&H will share practical insights from the last two years advising healthcare organizations and Base Cyber Security will help making the link on how information security goes hand in hand with privacy regulations, and what organizations can do about it.

In the last months of 2017 there were a couple of  practical and relevant publications. For example: the ´Article 29. Working Party [Artikel 29. werkgroep] published the guidelines for transparency (within the AVG ) and in the Netherlands there was a proposal published with a statement and explanation of the so called uitvoeringsweg AVG. Besides this, these last two years we experienced many practical insights and we want to  share this with you!

The event, organized by LS&H will take place on Tuesday 15th of May; we want to explain and share the news around the implementation of the AVG. Besides this, at this event, Base Cyber Security will share their experience on the information security side and how it relates to the AVG / GDPR and data collection, data storage and securing the data.

Event review: GDPR/AVG Ready

After event review

The GDPR( AVG ) focused on Healthcare / Life Sciences event was a great event! The session had it all; it was very informative, it had a great crowd from different specialty areas (large pharmaceuticals, labs, health practitioners, health tech companies), and overall good interaction and discussions. Base Cyber Security got the chance to discuss all aspects of the General Data Protection Regulation, from the organizations / company perspective & how privacy and the GDPR could be a good trigger for organizations to rethink their business and how they should approach their personal data.
LS & H shared the details of the legislation, how it compares with previous privacy regulations and how it relates to the business, and BCS had the chance to make the link between the information security efforts and GDPR in companies.
