Description


Following the tragic events in Manchester on the 22nd May, we have rescheduled our event to a later date as a mark of respect.

Albert Square Chop House, Manchester, 4th July 2017, 08:30- 16:30

The countdown clock to GDPR coming into full force is now minutes to midnight, but the UK Software Channel looks is still missing the tremendous sales opportunities in front of us.

*Sessions Announced*

Keynote

GDPR-Are You Ready for the opportunity?
Jim Sneddon, AssureData

With the enforcement of GDPR only a year away, many organisations are still not ready for it and there is likely to be a rush of customers looking for guidance, support and advice on how to become compliant QUICKLY. This will present a great opportunity for vendors and resellers who are themselves prepared with solid solutions and clear messaging around how they can help their customers through a potentially difficult transition period.

This keynote from Assuredata will highlight a number of areas that will need to be addressed in the coming months and how you can take advantage of the opportunity by being prepared yourselves.

Jim Sneddon, an expert GDPR practitioner will set the scene on some of the harsh realities of GDPR, the scope of what needs to happen in the UK market and the channel opportunities this presents to you.


Vendor Sessions

To fly the flag for our reseller partners, multiple vendors are coming together with Sigma in Manchester this GDPR Channel summit, to show resellers how to offer their customers solutions to the compliance issues thrown up by the implementation of this key piece of legislation.

Delphix

  • How to present GDPR as an opportunity to increase efficiency and accelerate innovation.
    Gary Hallam, Director Of Sales Engineering, Delphix
    With all the noise around GDPR, it’s easy to see compliance as a cost to the business, and an inhibiter of agility. However this presents a once in a generation opportunity to change the way you handle data. With the right tools not only can you fulfil GDPR obligations, but you can actually remove legacy cost and speed up IT. This presentation will discuss how the Delphix platform helps companies go faster, by securely delivering data at the speed of business.

Flexera

  • GDPR & Cyber Risks – Reduce Risks via a Holistic Approach.
    Dr. Christian Schröder, Head German IP/IT & Data Privacy, Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe
    The risk is real – GDPR, cybersecurity and other laws soon will be in full affect. Is your IT security ready? Christian Schröder will discuss the applicable legal frameworks and best practices for companies to mitigate their risk exposure.
  • Brace for Impact. The Velocity of Vulnerabilities.
    Toby Fryer, Channel Sales Manager
    Last year we saw over 702 million attempts worldwide to launch software exploits; a 24.54% increase from 2015 and expected to rise further for 2017. Toby Fryer will look to discuss why this trend continues to rise and the simple process to mitigate exploits.

Quest

  • Critical strategies to survive GDPR’
    Alistair Holmes, Software Sales Engineering Senior Manager
    Quest will be discussing how they can help customers maintain GDPR compliance by using their suite of tools to discover who has access to data, what that access is, how you can be instantly alerted to changes in your Active Directory that might modify the level of access that people in your organisation have and how you can automate the access to data through the use of Roles Based Access Control (RBAC).

The requirement for commercial enterprises, SMBs, public sector and Government bodies alike to get a grip on their accountability for the way they store and use data is now at a critical level. After May 2018 they can be fined up to 4% of their annual global turnover (or 20 million euros, whichever is greater) for non-compliance, not to mention the brand reputation impact and civil action from those effected by a data breach. The true costs to a business of ignoring this can be catastrophic.
