  1. Birgit Hess, May 18, 16:00 – 17:00  
Title: What is data protection and why is it important? 
Did you know that there is a fundamental difference between data protection and IT security? This workshop will discuss what that difference is and why it is important for associations to know about both. There are many technical and legal risks involved when processing data. Protection against cyber-attacks is just as important as the secure and legal handling of personal data. During this session, participants will be provided with technical and organizational measures to protect data and tips for practical implementation. Kindly note: the session does not serve as legal advice but provides a great introduction to the topic. 
Meet the speaker: 
Our expert speaker, Birgit Hess, Product Security Officer at SAP is a fierce believer in the value and necessity of data protection. Birgit joined SAP in 2006 and during her career she discovered her passion for protecting a fundamental human right - the right to Data Privacy.
