  • 24 January: (ISC)2 EMEA Secure Webinar Doing the right thing: Privacy beyond GDPR

New Year, New Predictions

As we enter a new year, every vendor likes to give their view on the coming 12 months.  We picked up on a set of predictions IBM collected and gave it 11 out of 12.  Have your say on it on LinkedIn.

Member Profile

This month’s profile is of JUDr. Jan Barta. Jan studied at Univerzita Karlova v Praze, Pravnicka fakulta and qualified as a (Doctor of Law), Intellectual Property Law in 2012.

What’s your interest in Security?
My primary field of law is intellectual property rights and how it relates to IT Law, copyright law, trademarks, industrial designs, personal data protection, etc.. This is all inter-twined with information technology so gaining a high level understanding of the approach to securing an organisation, in particular for data protection, can help me advise clients suitably.

Which aspect of security will you be following closely this year?
I'll be following GDPR closely as the deadline for organisations to comply gets nearer.

What can you offer the Czech Chapter?
I can give a different perspective on the way executives approach security. I understand the value of the assets they are trying to protect and the reasons they are doing it. In particular when you are considering the legal consequences of an incident.

You’re a lawyer! Can you help with my parking fine?
Of course! But it’s probably cheaper to just pay it.
