GDPR UK Summit – New Date Announced30 May, 2017
Following the tragic events in Manchester on the 22nd May, we took the decision to postpone our event taking place on the 25th May. We now hope you’ll join us at The Albert Square Chop House in Manchester on 4th July 2017 for a special channel reseller event on The General Data Protection Regulation.
The countdown clock to GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is ticking fast and with less than 12 months left until it comes into full force we continue to see a growth in data breaches and fines. The Reseller channel has a huge opportunity to help customers through Duty of Care and yet today is lacking the knowledge and messaging to embrace this.
To fly the flag for our reseller partners, multiple vendors are coming together with Sigma in Manchester for this GDPR Channel summit, to show resellers how to offer their customers solutions to the compliance issues thrown up by the implementation of this key piece of legislation. The GDPR Channel Summit features these major software vendors with products that directly mitigate GDPR compliance issues:
The requirement for commercial enterprises, SMBs, public sector and Government bodies alike to get a grip on their accountability for the way they store and use data is now at a critical level. After May 2018 they can be fined up to 4% of their annual global turnover (or 20 million euros, whichever is greater) for non-compliance, not to mention the brand reputation impact and follow on civil action from those effected by a data breach. The true costs to a business of ignoring this can be catastrophic.
