DGIQ 2018

12 Jul

The DGIQ conference this year went well. I had two presentations, caught up with industry colleagues and customers. It helped that it was in San Diego – and the weather relative to the hot mugginess of the Mid Atlantic was excellent.

My presentation on GDPR was surprisingly well attended. I say surprising in that the deadline has passed, and I find that there are still companies that are formulating their  plans. However, I am beginning to feel a bit like Samuel Jackson.

In the GDPR presentation, the goal was to focus attention on not only doing the right thing to be compliant, but also doing it right. How do we reduce the stress and overhead of dealing with regulators. We call this “Audit Resilience.”  I spoke to a number of people that are taking a wait and see approach to GDPR compliance. Interestingly even though they are taking this approach, they are still getting requests to remove personal information. It seems to me that if you are taking a wait and see approach, you really still need to be able to remove personal information from at least the web site otherwise, you risk triggering a complaint, and then … you have no defense. Goal has to be to do everything not to trigger a complaint. The presentation took about 15 minutes, and the rest of the time was spent demonstrating the data control model in the DATUM governance platform – Information Value Management.

Also had the pleasure of presenting with Lynn Scott who co chairs the Healthcare Technology & Innovation practice at Polsinelli with Bill Tanenbaum – what we wanted to do was push home the point that collaboration is key when dealing with thorny risk and compliance issues. We tried to have some fun with this one.

I will be at the Data Architecture Summit in Chicago in October. The session will cover:

  • What are the requirements to ensure management is “audit resilient”?
  • What is a Control System and how is it related to a Data Control Model?
  • What is “regulatory alignment” from a data perspective?
  • How do I build a Data Control Model?
  • What role do advanced techniques (AI, Machine Learning) play in audit resilience?

Hope to see you all there
