On January 23, 2018, multinational consulting firm Capgemini interviewed Bojana Bellamy, President of the Centre for Information Policy Leadership at Hunton & Williams, for their “Jane Meets” video series with the Chief Information Security Officer (“CISO”). Bellamy spoke with the CISO of Capgemini about companies’ readiness to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). In response to a question about the key responsibilities of a CISO in GDPR compliance, Bellamy said, “…where I see great involvement for CISO also is in ensuring that the company is ready to deal with security breaches. So it’s not just about preventing the breach, which is obvious, but it’s also about readiness to deal with the breach and readiness to then manage the breach and notify individuals and regulators, because that is what [the] GDPR requires.”
Capgemini’s video series also focuses on cybersecurity and risk, with an emphasis on the need for a proactive approach to keep companies ahead of the increased number of cyber threats.
