Improve your IT-setup and make it GDPR compliant

28th March 2017

08:00 - 10:30

Interxion and City Network invites you to a free breakfast seminar! 

We want to welcome you to a highly topical and informative breakfast seminar, where we will address the implications of the GDPR and how companies in the financial sector can comply with regulatory demands by using modern IT infrastructure solutions.

To many companies, and most of all businesses operating in the financial sector, the handling of data storage and protection of personal data is up high on the agenda. From May 25, 2018, organisations operating in the EU must follow the new Data Protection Regulation, GDPR. Organisations that handle personal data may need to carry out comprehensive adjustments of their IT systems, infrastructure and processes to meet the demands of the new data protection regulation.

We will share our knowledge, provide you with tips and give you inspiration for how to prepare your company and your customers for the GDPR.

The seminar will be in English.

In April 2016 the EU adopted a new Data Protection Regulation, The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The new regulation replaces the former Swedish law Personal Data Act (PUL), and represents a marked tightening of the management and protection of personal data, including how companies can collect, store, access and manage data. The new regulation comes into force May 25, 2018.
