Collectively, these speakers will provide an authoritative voice on the changing privacy landscape across the market, in the context of New Zealand.
Launched earlier this month, Reseller News Exchange provides an interactive forum designed to debate the key issues of the day in the New Zealand channel.
Through open and engaging table discussions, partners can offer opinions on the opportunities and challenges ahead, providing a platform for different perspectives and insights.
Launched in response to market demand, Exchange has been created to provide a voice to all attendees, spanning partner, vendor and distributor organisations across New Zealand.
The first two events will take place in Wellington and Auckland on the mornings of Wednesday 23 May and Thursday 24 May respectively, under the theme of - How will GDPR impact New Zealand?
As the European Union awaits the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), New Zealand businesses remain unaware, uninformed and unconcerned.
Set for 25 May, the legislation will fundamentally change how organisations access, store and use personal data, impacting companies trading with the EU.
In a world now dominated by privacy scandals and controversies, the preparedness of Kiwi partners and customers will come into question, with heavy sanctions punishing inaction.
But as the nation debates data breach notification laws, and wider security concerns, GDPR is ghosting on past, out of sight and out of mind.
This exclusive Reseller News Exchange will go on the road to debate the early implications of GDPR in New Zealand, extracting opportunities while evaluating challenges for the channel in the year ahead.
Both events are open to channel partners - spanning resellers, managed service providers, system integrators, consultants, independent software vendors and start-ups.
