Seminar Stimulates Discussion About GDPR

The chapter's Cybersecurity Committee collaborated with Portugal's Ministry of National Defense (MDN) to organize a November seminar on the implications of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in defense at the EDP Auditorium in Lisbon. Attendees represented the entire universe of defense, including all the core services of the MDN, the General Joint Staff and the three branches of the armed forces. The event consisted of two panels moderated by Rear Adm. António Gameiro Marques, National Security Authority, and Rear Adm. Mario do Carmo Durão, PRT N (Ret.), chapter president, respectively. It aimed to stimulate discussion among different defense leaders responsible for the new obligations that the GDPR establishes in May. The chapter intended to alert those responsible for the MDN and armed forces to the need to adapt the information and security structures to guarantee the protection of personal data and to report on the direct and intangible costs that might occur from security breaches.
