GDPR – Competitive Edge for MSPs
The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) became effective May 2018. The risks of non-compliance can range from up to €20 million to 4% of annual revenues but understanding and implementing GDPR compliance obligations can help Managed Service Providers maintain a competitive edge in the marketplace. The goal of this webinar series is to go beyond simply explaining the GDPR and its requirements. This webinar is constructed in a way to do a deeper dive on specific topics relating to GDPR to equip MSPs with advanced knowledge, use cases, legal requirements and technical options to be compliant. This webinar will teach you:
- Does GDPR apply to me?
- What it means to be a “processor” under GDPR.
- What MSPs can do to ensure compliance.
- Benefits of verification.
- Role of attorneys in establishing a compliance program.
