For professionals in security, identity management and access management (IAM) 2018 will be a very important year. As of May 25th all companies and other organizations must comply with the new GDPR regulations and as of Saturday January 13th PDS2 will be a fact of lite for the entire EU. When thinking of customer privacy and processing consumer data, obligations pile up. The question is: are these opportunities or barriers for business development?
In co-operation with partner IBM, SecurIT invited professionals for a ‘round table event’ end of last year in the Boardroom of the Rembrandt Tower in Amsterdam. Those attending discussed the impact of the new legislation on IAM.
The event was kicked-off by Angélique van Oortmarssen (KPMG) and Sonny Duijn (ABN AMRO). Ms. Van Oortmarssen spoke on GDPR and mr. Duijn shared his views on how PSD2 will impact retail business.
After these two short briefings the conversation concentrated on how companies need to adapt their own IT-infrastructure and open access digital platforms to benefit from the new opportunities GDPR and PSD2 will offer. Especially the impact on the financial services sector and retail was discussed.
