GDPR Privacy and cybersecurity compliance - the SOC connection

December 26, 2017


You hear news of each new breach of privacy and sigh with relief: your company’s data is secure. But still — you worry about the damage that a cybersecurity breach could cause to your organization.

Now Canadian companies face one more cybersecurity and privacy challenge: the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The legislation is European in origin but global in impact. For Canadian companies, the GDPR resets the cybersecurity equation by unleashing a fresh batch of steep fines for companies that are not compliant. To prepare, you need to protect your company and directors.

The “GDPR Privacy and Cybersecurity Compliance — The SOC Connection” guide is designed to help you understand how a SOC report can cover your GDPR compliance needs to avoid penalties and fines. You will learn:

  • Why the new GDPR could impact your business
  • How a SOC report can attest to your GDPR compliance
  • How to select the right SOC option for your business
  • How to assess the benefits that a SOC report brings to your business

In addition, you will find out the five key questions you can use to drive your organization’s cybersecurity and privacy assessment.
