October’s a special month at Rencore as we will be hosting a second webinar already this month.

On the 24th October, our special guest Paolo Pialorsi will be delivering a webinar on an extremely important topic that all decision makers will find critical to their organization’s future practices. Keep this date in mind, as of the 25th May 2018, all trading partners of European businesses, whether European or worldwide, will have to adhere to the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

When considering data protection, GDPR is being widely recognized as one of the most significant changes  in the last 20 years:

​“The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world that is vastly different from the time in which the 1995 directive was established. Although the key principles of data privacy still hold true to the previous directive, many changes have been proposed to the regulatory policies” (EUGDPR.org, 2017).

In this Rencore webinar, Paolo will guide you through the main requirements of GDPR from an IT perspective. He will explain which Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint Online out-of-the-box capabilities can help you stay within the boundaries of GDPR.

Here’s a little more info on our special guest. Paolo Pialorsi is a consultant, trainer, and author who specializes in developing Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft SharePoint-based enterprise solutions.
