Why is Data Security So Important for Events after GDPR?

  • GDPR makes ‘Privacy by Design’ a legal requirement, which means privacy concerns and the security of attendee data should be a consideration from the offset of all event planning activities – and not just an afterthought.
  • GDPR requires event planners to take responsibility on how their third-party data processors (hotels, venues, agencies and event tech suppliers) are also looking after their attendee data.
  • GDPR makes it compulsory to notify authorities within 72 hours of discovering a security breach – it is therefore important for event teams to understand what constitutes a breach and what they should do if data is compromised.
