“Every day, corporate IT teams across public and private sector enterprises face the struggle of balancing the interests of data privacy and security against the need to share personal data internally and with business partners,” said Kevin Conklin, Vice President of Content and Product Marketing at Ipswitch. “With the implementation of the Data Protection Act of 2018 (DPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), this special executive briefing will look at likely near term legal and security threat developments and how other IT teams have responded.”

This roundtable is designed to be an interactive session and an opportunity to share experiences and network with peers.

“The use of unsanctioned IT systems and applications within organizations increase the likelihood of ‘unofficial’ and uncontrolled data flows, making it more difficult to comply with a variety of regulations,” said Stefanie Jacobs, Tech Solutions Professional at Microsoft. “While the urge to eliminate all shadow IT applications is understandable, it’s rarely the best solution. The key is to develop a sound strategy to monitor, track and control this behavior in line with business processes and company ethics.”

An RSVP emailed to bferrari@ipswitch.com is required. Only registered guests may attend. Once your RSVP is received, the U.S. Embassy will issue an official invitation.
