GDPR is upon us. With event professionals preparing for compliance for the past couple of years, it’s finally time for action. Event professionals have been planning and working towards being compliant so as to avoid any mishaps or penalties and ensure apt data security.
One key change that is brought about through this regulation is the sharing of responsibility among the data controllers and the processors.Data processors are the organisation that processes the personal data of the data subject while controllers determine the purpose of processing the personal information. In this case, event tech vendors are the data controllers and it’s your responsibility to ensure data safety and that it is being stored in a proper manner.
