On the 25th May this year the UK will adopt new EU laws governing the way that organisations manage personal data.
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will replace the existing Data Protection Act and aim to clamp down on the misuse of personal data and improve the way information is both captured and stored.
Over the coming weeks, the Event Industry News podcast will be talking to event professionals about the topic and how it will affect the operations undertaken by our industry.
In this episode, host James Dickson welcomes David Chalmers, Senior Marketing Director for Europe at Cvent. As a leading cloud-based enterprise event management platform, Cvent is processing and handling the personal data of its client’s attendees, putting the company at the frontline of the new regulations. During the podcast, David talks about how the company is approaching the changes and the work it is doing with its clients to ensure that they understand the new laws.
