Webinar Replay:

The Right to Be Forgotten versus the Need for Backups; Which One Wins?

Watch the replay now!

It’s been almost 2 years since the GDPR became law and 5 months since the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was enacted.  One of the biggest provisions of the GDPR and CCPA is a data subject's right to have their personal information (PI) erased – otherwise known as the right to be forgotten.

One key question as you and your team grapple with the intent and interpretation of these laws: Do the EUs GDPR and California’s CCPA privacy regulations include the right of a data subject to have their personal information completely erased from all enterprise backups as well?

In this session we will address the following:

  • Are backups included in the right to be forgotten?
  • What are the potential challenges to editing PI out of backup tapes?
  • What are the potential solutions for removing PI from backups?
  • How will IT adapt their need to backup systems and data with these new privacy requirements?
  • A look ahead to CCPA 2.0
