BigID Inc., a leader in personal data protection and privacy, today announced details of its participation at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2018, taking place June 4-7 in National Harbor, Maryland.

With the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now in effect (as of May 25, 2018), privacy and personal data protection has never been more important. For corporations this means new priority is being placed on replacing manual spreadsheet and survey based privacy compliance with data-driven personal data protection and privacy automation. BigID, which was recently named a 2018 Cool Vendor in Privacy Management by Gartner, leverages machine learning and identity intelligence to help enterprises operationalize data privacy and meet the reguirements of global regulations, such as GDPR Data Subject Access Requests and Article 30 Record Keeping.

Who: George Chedzhemov, Director of Client Success, BigID

What: Privacy is all about people. Without knowing whose data you have, it’s not possible to protect individuals’ privacy. GDPR data subject access rights require companies to put this principle into practice. However, legacy tools cannot determine what personal information belongs to which data subject. In the session, “Person-centric GDPR Data Subject Rights Operationalization,” Chedzhemov will explore how a person-centric approach to locating and understanding data is necessary to operationalize the data subject rights lifecycle from request to fulfillment.

When: Tuesday, June 5 from 1:55 p.m. – 2:20 p.m. EDT

Where: Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland

BigID is a silver sponsor and will be demonstrating the BigID platform at booth #900. To schedule a demo outside of Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2018, go to or contact BigID at info(at)bigid(dot)com.
