San Francisco, CA — February 9, 2017AvePoint, the Microsoft Cloud expert, announced today that it will deliver best practices around the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) at the upcoming RSA Conference 2017, which takes place from February 13-17 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. Attendees can visit AvePoint at booth N5105 in the exhibit hall throughout the event to learn how organizations worldwide are preparing for the new legislation – set to come into force in May 2018 – as well as learn about solutions and expert advice to help come into compliance with the GDPR.

“In addition to imposing greater fines for data breaches, the GDPR includes significant new mandates that organizations will need to prepare for by striking the right balance of collaboration and transparency with data protection and privacy,” said Dana Simberkoff, Chief Compliance and Risk Officer at AvePoint. “AvePoint is committed to helping our customers achieve these goals, and we look forward to sharing our insights and solutions that can help organizations come into compliance with this new legislation throughout RSA Conference 2017.”

The GDPR marks the beginning of significant changes to how companies doing business in Europe and with Europeans manage and process personal data, their privacy compliance programs, as well as IT systems and infrastructure. In addition to working closely with customers worldwide to prepare for the legislation, AvePoint has partnered with the Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL) at Hunton & Williams, LLP, a global privacy think tank, to publish the first-ever global benchmark report for the GDPR. RSA attendees can visit the AvePoint team through the event to obtain a copy of the report and discuss key findings.
