An Approach to GDPR - Leuven

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 -
6:00pm to 10:00pm
 Add to Calendar


Most of you have already heard of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the latest privacy initiative from the EU, which has to be implemented in less than a year (deadline: May 25th 2018). Many organisations have already started their preparations or should start those very shortly.
What is your role as a business analyst to help your organisation with these preparations ? How do you start your analysis ? What approach will you take ? 
Xavier Darmstaedter will start the evening with a 15-20 minutes high-level presentation on the different topics of GDPR, such as rights of data subjects (e.g. right to information, right to be forgotten, ...), data processing principles (e.g. gather only what is necessary, no bundling of incompatible purposes, ...), etc ...
After his presentation, we will split up in groups, each group taking a GDPR topic in more detail, preferably with a case from a group member's organisation or a case organisation. Xavier will be available to help the groups on a chosen topic. 
This workshop:
  • will give you an idea on what GDPR exactly means
  • might give you a jumpstart to start (or continue) business analysis on GDPR (or maybe even on another subject) in your own organisation
  • will give you some insight of how your peers engage business analysis on a given topic

Target audience:

Anyone active in a business analysis role or with the intention to start a business analysis career.
Anyone else looking for ways to prepare the organization for the GDPR challenge.
