Kiwi channel debates GDPR as Reseller News Exchange hits Wellington

As the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect, New Zealand businesses remain unaware, uninformed and unconcerned. With 25 May now passed, 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, in association with Arrow ECS ANZ, ForeScout and StorageCraft, went 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.
