The Data Protection Officer required by GDPR
What is the DPO required to do? What kind of person should you be looking for?
The General Data Protection Regulation, which becomes law on May 25, 2018, requires companies to have a Data Protection Officer (DPO).
This person needs to be highly connected, highly effective and highly accessible.
During the webinar we will discuss what is required, a little of the history of the GDPR and what qualities you need to be looking for in a DPO. We’ll also touch on how EXIN can help.
Quinn's philosophy is that the convenience and security are not mutually exclusive - good security can be achieved simultaneously with user convenience. Contrary to what people believe, the work of a good information security professional is not to say "no" to a business goal or request, but to find a safe way to say "yes". This philosophy comes from experience gathered throughout a very diverse career.
Quinn started his career as an officer in the U.S. Navy, teaching sailors how to operate the nuclear reactors found on U.S. submarines and aircraft carriers. He then moved into staff and project management in the IT field, spending several years leading the technical development and support of TIBCO technologies for Procter & Gamble, HP, and Hydus, Inc. In 2006, Quinn joined the University of Cincinnati as a Cybercrime Investigator, then Manager of Information Security and finally, Director of Information Security. Quinn is now the Executive Director of Information Security at Boston University, one of the leading urban research universities in the world, ranked 41st in the U.S. (U.S. News & World Report) and 50th in the world (Times of London) in 2013. BU is the fourth largest private university in the U.S. with 33,500 students and 9,000 faculty and staff in 16 Schools and Colleges and association with Boston Medical Center.
Quinn holds an MBA from the University of Cincinnati, a B.S. in Physics from Andrews University and numerous professional certifications, including: CISM, CISSP, ITIL and previously, PMP, GIAC Certified Forensics Analyst (GCFA)
