Bizzabo is taking event data security to the next level by working towards full GDPR compliance by May of 2018

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU Protection regulation that will come into effect in May 25th, 2018. The new regulation will focus on ensuring organizations that deal with personal data do so in a secure and transparent way.

Why is being GDPR compliant so important to us?

First of all, GDPR applies to companies that sell to, hire or engage with EU citizens, residents and organizations. As a company that does all three, it is important for us to make sure we’re legally compliant with any regulation that may apply to our business.

In addition, GDPR is fully aligned with our values. We respect our customers and their users’ privacy. GDPR supports and enables individuals to secure and maintain their privacy, a key value for us here at Bizzabo.

What are the key GDPR implications for event SaaS platforms?

  • Data transparency: Be very clear with our customers and their users on how their data is being used. No games, no tricks - tell it like it is.
  • Freedom of data access: Give customers and their users the ability to access their data, delete their data and share their data with different parties as requested.
  • Data security reporting: Inform customers, their users and relevant authorities of any data breach within 72 hours of such incident.
  • Data security compliance: Ensure that security programs, encryption technologies, Data Privacy Officer, audit tools and monitoring tools are on par with industry standards.

A sneak peek into some of the changes we’re working on

  • Product: Our tech and security team are currently working to ensure we’re compliant with the GDPR requirements and have all required capabilities by May 2018.
  • Legal: Our legal team is currently working on reviewing our Privacy Policy, Organizer Terms and End User Terms to ensure we’re fully supportive and compliant with the GDPR requirements by May 2018.
  • Additional updates will be posted on this page as we continue to prepare for May 2018.
