Eventsforce has announced today that it is conducting an industry-wide survey, which is aimed to raise awareness amongst event planners of the security risks around their event data. The study is targeting a wide range of organisations across the world, including corporates, associations, charities, PCOs, event management companies, governments and educational institutions.
“There have been a number of data security stories in the headlines over the last year – from the data breaches at Talk Talk to the Ashley Madison dating site. Though there have been no major incidents involving the events industry to date, it is probably only a matter of time. Events deal with highly sensitive customer information, including names, addresses, emails, telephone numbers and even things like employment information and dietary requirements. Safeguarding this data is critical. We hope this survey can reveal the importance of the issue and prompt the industry to put greater attention and significance on the matter,” said Steve Baxter, Chief Technology officer at Eventsforce.
