New GDPR Regulations

The Data Guardian: Converting GDPR Compliance from a Cost into a Benefit
Sten Vesterli, More Than Code
In preparation for GDPR, organizations are busy hiring Data Protection Officers. Unfortunately, most DPOs are simply hired into organizational cul-de-sacs in preparation for their role as sacrificial lambs to be fired at the first data breach. On the other hand, the Cambridge Analytica brouhaha shows that everybody is waking up to the fact that data is the raw material of the new economy. This presentation argues that since you are already establishing a DPO office, you should take GDPR as an opportunity to instigate the role of Data Guardians with responsibility for data access, integrity, confidentiality, lifecycle, enrichment and monetization.

Emerging Technologies Special Interest Group – Let’s Talk Blockchain
Hans Kolbe, Principal, Celantra Systems; Shyam Nathm, Director, IoT, General Electric (GE); and Rene Frank Roembell, Senior Manager, Celantra Systems
Blockchain is the latest hot topic. It holds a lot of promise, but looks quite confusing at first. While this SIG will be a forum to understand all emerging technology, the focus this session is on Blockchain – the current reality, the multiple variations, and participants of Blockchain. Together we will explore the future impact on business, personal, and legal transaction management. This will our first get-together at the OAUG Collaborate. We will hear presentations on the latest development. We will review Oracle’s and other offerings. We will discuss the mission and activities of the Group. We expect attendance from Oracle and other Blockchain organizations. Add to your agenda
