GDPR is the new reality for the meetings industry and whether you register thousands of attendees from the European Union or just a handful, you are obligated to comply with the data privacy requirements set forth by the European Union.
Centium Software, the publisher of the award-winning EventsAIR platform, understands these challenges.
“Talking about GDPR is fine but knowing how to manage your internal policies and procedures is crucial to your GDPR compliance and success,” said Alec Sonenthal, Director of Technology for Centium Software. “It’s crucial for planners to partner with a technology solution that is cutting-edge and secure in its architecture and data practices. Just as important, it is crucial for your vendor to understand the obligations that meeting planners face in protecting their clients personal data.”
Mr. Sonenthal noted that they have created something rarely seen in the industry, a comprehensive toolkit designed to help their clients meet and exceed the obligations set forth in GDPR.
The latest version of EventsAIR includes the Data Protection Toolkit, a series of tools and processes designed to help meeting planners streamline their compliance with GDPR. The Data Protection Toolkit (Pat. Pending) is a first for the meetings industry, designed to help meeting professionals manage the many requirements surrounding data privacy and personal information.
Mr. Sonenthal noted that the new toolkit provides integrated processes to manage policy statements, consent logging, attendee reporting and third-party communications. A contact locator tool and anonymization technology ensures clients can communicate, log actions, report and protect the data of their attendees in full compliance of GDPR.
The EventsAIR GDPR Data Protection Toolkit is available to all users as a standard feature in all licenses of the platform.
