HTNG has created a new workgroup to help hospitality companies and other industry stakeholders with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR is a law governing PII (Personal Data) that will be enforced in the European Union in mid-2018. Global hospitality chains, trading partners and vendors who conduct business within the European region need guidance to navigate the pitfalls associated with compliance to these updated laws.
HTNG’s GDPR for Hospitality Workgroup will produce an executive-level white paper to describe key considerations, use cases and impacts of these regulations. This paper will focus on top areas the hospitality industry must address in order to prepare for GDPR compliance (and vendor support of those use cases). Additionally, the workgroup will produce a GDPR assessment tool that will help professionals in the hospitality industry evaluate their company’s ability to comply with the new regulation.
The kickoff teleconference for GDPR for Hospitality will be held on September 21, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. CDT. To sign up, HTNG members can visit the GDPR for Hospitality Workgroup page and log-in to join.
