EMCS Podcast: Seven Stages of GDPR, Professor Deborah Hurley

You’ve heard of the Seven Stages of Grief.  Get ready for the Seven Stages of GDPR. Brown University of Executive Master of Cybersecurity faculty member Deborah Hurley came up with this model to explain American companies’ painful path to acceptance of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a European Union law that goes into full effect May 25, 2018 with wide-ranging consequences for companies on both sides of the Atlantic.

Listen to this podcast to find out why American companies need to strengthen their understanding of the GDPR’s scope, penalties, and requirements for compliance.  Learn why this new world of GDPR demands cybersecurity leaders with both technology and policy expertise to drive strategy for the threats and challenges of today and tomorrow.

Hurley is an Adjunct Professor of the Practice of Computer Science at Brown University, Fellow at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University, and seminal player over the last 30 years in the development of industry standards for information security.
