About the Program
Replacing the 1995 Data Protection Directive, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to bring in a single set of data protection rules for the 28 member states and give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data, and to simplify the regulatory environment for international businesses. The GDPR comes into effect on 25 May 2018 after a two year transition period during which time companies with data on EU residents and/or with an office in the EU are meant to have implemented a compliance regime. According to the latest Global Forensic Data Analytics Survey from EY, only 12 percent of relevant businesses in the Asia Pacific region have a compliance plan in place. Ramiro Rodriguez will provide a practical overview of how the key principles affect your business in Singapore and the best ways to remain compliant.
The new GDPR rules provide an opportunity for savvy businesses to gain a competitive advantage over others by leading the charge, strengthening their brand equity and retaining customers’ trust and loyalty. Jay Shah will talk about OpenDNA’s artificial intelligence system that combines machine learning, neural networks and natural language processing to build detailed psychographic and behavioural maps of users so that they can have a personalized experience.
