As the official GDPR Focus Day Partner, Cognizant invites you to attend the Chief Data Officer Europe summit.


Global digitization and an increment in the number of sources for obtaining customer data have opened new business opportunities in driving customer centricity and trust. But this has simultaneously increased the challenges of protecting information around personal identity.

The General Data Protection Regulation is an essential step to strengthen citizen’s fundamental rights in the digital age. While GDPR is a necessary compliance exercise, it can also ensure world-class customer service and help you win your customer’s trust. The level of understanding about GDPR among organizations is varying, with many still trying to grasp its full impact. Chief Data Officers must thrive to establish a data governance culture across organizations to properly monitor its usage.

Building awareness about GDPR across organizations is essential as compliance is necessary and the deadline for compliance is fast approaching. Join us at the GDPR Focus day to hear insights from top leaders on how they are implementing the framework for compliance.

We look forward to meeting you there!


GDPR compliance requires changes in all aspects of the business architecture – people, processes, technology and data.

Some key highlights of compliance require an enterprise to understand what personal data it holds for consumers, employees and suppliers, where it is held, who has access to it, for what purpose is it used and perhaps most importantly that it has the appropriate consents to do so as well as providing adequate security to protect it against theft and accidental loss.

From mid 2018 going forward, Enterprises will have to provide a transparent demonstration of its fulfillment of its accountabilities as laid out in this legislation in order to comply with GDPR.

This will be a significant undertaking for many enterprises and failure to do so could attract substantial financial penalties. Is your business going to be ready for it?

Watch this joint webinar from Cognizant and Informatica on ‘Using GDPR to Drive Customer Centricity and Trust’. The webinar focuses on how GDPR can have a valuable impact on your customer service, ways of establishing GDPR compliance within your organization and how you can achieve a competitive edge in the industry with this regulation.
