Join HFM for our Boston Breakfast Briefing, a free to attend event, held exclusively for named HFM members and trialists.

Featuring a panel-led discussion and informal networking, the briefing is an excellent opportunity to update your knowledge, whilst meeting with your industry peers and connecting with new business contacts.

Topic:
Preparing for GDPR as a US firm and keeping your data safe

Compliance, data protection and data security are not narrow concerns. With the upcoming GDPR, any business that touches Europe it is not a “box-ticking” compliance exercise but requires basic and broad business transformation. It puts the individual/consumer at the heart of data protection law. For many organisations it may mean revisiting their core business model. This panel will discuss data security, data protection and compliance measures for US fund managers:

Discussion points include:

  • What affect will GDPR have on US Managers and what final steps should you be taking to prepare for the 25 May deadline?
  • What compliance requirements are causing the most concern to fund managers? Is it the cost of implementation, additional resourcing or transfer of data? Or is fund documentation, P&Ps and staff training more of a concern?
  • When it comes to handling data internally, what challenges arise between conflicting laws and regulations? How can you best manage the requirement to disclose information for compliance purposes with data protection responsibilities?
  • What questions are investors asking of your data-handling policies? Is there an increased focus on these issues while conducting operational due diligence?
  • What tough questions should you be asking of your cloud providers and other service providers that manage or process your data?
  • How can you best monitor ongoing internal & external data breach threats?
