Smart Data Discovery and Transparency for Complying with CCPA, GDPR and other Privacy Regulations
Data privacy and protection requirements can no longer be brushed aside. In 2018, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), went into effect; GDPR set new standards for how organizations must protect EU citizens’ data that they collect, share, and analyze, or face stiff financial and reputational penalties. Now, the clock is ticking for firms based in California or that have customers or employees who live in the state.
This webinar addressed:
The New Data Journey; Automated Data Governance
There are increasing global regulations that govern what data companies may keep, dictate how they can use it, and mandate under which circumstances they may keep it, or must get rid of it. From HIPAA to GLBA to GDPR and now, CCPA, these privacy regulations are forcing firms worldwide to re-examine the policies and processes they deploy to keep track of the information they have, where it resides and how it is being used.

Big Data: How to Get Corporate Directors to Love It
“We are in a new era of big data – and company directors are finding it hard to adapt,” Merendino says. “Directors struggle to introduce changes within the shortened timescales created by an ever-changing backdrop of new data and they are under pressure to adapt the way strategic decisions are made.” In this webinar, Dr. Merendino addressed these critical issues and more.
Deconstructing Data Complexity and the Case for AI-Driven Smart Data Discovery
It is undeniable that the amount and complexity of data is growing within the modern enterprise. But why and what to do about it is the question that every enterprise leader must now face.
In this insightful and thought-provoking webinar, we will deconstruct what is fueling data growth and increased data complexity, the approaches organizations have used to deal with the challenges that this growth brings, and why the only hope for dealing with it in the future may be smart data discovery approaches powered by artificial intelligence (AI).
Data Privacy, AI and what you need to know about Enterprise Data Catalogs
In a GDPR-driven world, your customers are increasingly insistent about their right to control the information you have about them. Increasingly, governments globally are echoing that sentiment and instituting new regulations that control what data you may keep about your customers, what you can do with it, and their right to demand that you get rid of it.
In this joint webinar, EDM Council and Io-Tahoe addressed these data issues, especially:
AI, ML and Smart Data Discovery; Getting Developers the Information and Capabilities They Need to Succeed
Developers are under greater pressure than ever before to make the most of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), as they attempt to help their companies make the most from the never-ending, continuously growing tsunami of data.
At the same time, they are being challenged to take a more strategic role at their firms and are pushed to discover new and improved ways of utilizing data to gain greater insights. All this, while facing increasingly gating factors, such as the EU’s GDPR, on the kinds of data that can be collected.
In this Webinar you will learn:
The Pendulum on the Move: Privacy Regulations after GDPR, and the Need for AI-driven Solutions
The implementation of GDPR had people worldwide paying far more attention to privacy issues than ever before. But even as GDPR has become a de facto global standard, the push towards greater consumer privacy has not stopped there. With additional regulations, such as Britain’s updated Data Protection Act, California’s new Consumer Privacy Act, and the forthcoming ePR initiative in the European Union, the pendulum will continue its course away from the “no privacy on the Internet” attitude of the 1990s.
In this Io-Tahoe webinar, noted editor, journalist, and technology gadfly, Evan Schuman, will weigh in on these topics and more, including:
Combining the Power of Data Catalogs and Artificial Intelligence
Machine learning is garnering an incredible amount of attention, but there is still confusion among many about how it can be put to significant use in enterprises, today and with an eye toward the future. This, coupled with a growing awareness of the importance of data cataloging, represents an incredible opportunity for companies that can implement them effectively and understand their potential.
In this webinar recording, viewers will join host Steve Friedberg and special guest Neil Raden, founder and principal analyst at Hired Brains Research, and discover:
Operationalized AI and machine learning: challenges and possible solutions
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has captured the imagination of many organizations, from small startups to vast Enterprise corporations. But doing AI successfully, and in a consistent fashion, can be an elusive goal, a fact which limits productivity, project success and mainstream adoption.
In this Io-Tahoe Webinar, you will join consulting veteran and an accomplished data scientist Ciprian Jichici, General Manager at Genisoft. Attendees will learn:
Data catalogs: mere registries or data management dynamos?
In this age of data complexity and regulatory strictness, many companies realize they need to be inventorying, mapping and cataloging their data. On the cataloging front, there’s no shortage of vendors and solutions aimed at meeting the need. That includes the Enterprise mega-vendors, specialty data management contenders and pure play data catalog providers alike.
Tune into the Io-Tahoe Webinar with Joseph D’Antoni, Principal Consultant at Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting, to learn about data catalog capabilities and workloads, today and into the future.
In this Webinar you’ll gain insight into whether data catalogs should:
The Tip of the Iceberg: Data Privacy, Data Discovery, Machine Learning and more
In an era of enhanced privacy enforcement, where GDPR may be merely the tip of the iceberg, how are companies expected to act? They have access to more data than ever before, residing in more places than ever before, but are now required to enforce strict rules on how that data may be used…or whether it may be used at all.
The challenge for companies, then, lies in how they will gain total control over all that data, regardless of where it resides and in which forms.
Tune into the Io-Tahoe webinar with Pam Baker, noted author of the widely acclaimed “Data Divination: Big Data Strategies and freelance journalist, to explore the world beyond GDPR.
