Guestline to Offer Hoteliers GDPR Roadmap at 2017 GDPR Conference
Following its expansion into Ireland earlier this year, the hospitality software business Guestline is continuing its investment in the Irish market as it joins other industry representatives at the Munster 2017 GDPR Conference. Taking place at The Brehon Hotel in Killarney on 27 November 2017, the event will offer advice and best practices ahead of major changes impacting the hospitality sector next year.
Hosted by cyber security agency Techfindr, the convention will offer hoteliers insight into the requirements around the forthcoming changes to GDPR legislation. This will include a focus on the financial penalties they will face if they are not compliant and the need to have robust cyber security policies in place. General counsel for Guestline, Jeremy Espley, will present on the definitions and scope of the new GDPR legislation. In particular this will address the new obligations that both hoteliers and technology providers to the industry will face both for securing consent to access data and processing data.
Espley will be joined by a notable panel of industry experts including Dina Vyapuri, managing director, Techfindr, Stilian Cvetkov, certified ethical hacker and Sharon O’Reilly, certified GDPR consultant, IT governance and GDPR coalition ambassador.
