Breakout Room 1

The challenges the GDPR imposes require organizations to not only know where personal information is, but also how it is being processed at any given time. At a time when even small organizations can have petabytes of data copied over thousands of systems, the GDPR compliance challenge quickly becomes an impossible task for the human brain, and even for conventional data governance tools. AI offers a unique solution to this challenge. AI's ability to "understand" the context within which data is found, allows for the quick identification of personal information across structured and unstructured repositories and the accurate matching of identities. This session will explore how some of the more nuanced requirements of this regulation can be met with the help of AI, and the additional opportunities AI offers beyond the necessity of compliance.
