PMI Atlanta Technology Forum provides an environment for Project Managers to adopt and benefit from the latest technology in their professional life and career. The forum also plans to bring speakers to discuss & share the best practices in technology.


The challenge of Data Privacy is to use data while protecting an individual’s privacy preferences and their personally identifiable information. The fields of computer security, data security, and information security design and use software, hardware, and human resources to address this issue. Since laws and regulations related to Privacy and Data Protection are constantly changing, it is important to keep abreast of any changes in the law and to continually reassess compliance with data privacy and security regulations. When GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) went into effect in May of 2018, it increased the complexity of determining data privacy at the individual and business level.  Join us at the Technology Forum on February 26th in a roundtable discussion with an esteemed panel of data privacy and GDPR experts.
