With the May 25, 2018 deadline for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rapidly approaching, VENZA® is distributing a GDPR Readiness Survey and needs your participation.
Daniel Johnson, Partner/Co-founder of VENZA, designed this survey to assess the level of compliance and awareness of organizations in the hospitality industry. Questions not only cover basic demographics, such as country and organizational size, but also measure concern about fines and expenditures for compliance and gauge awareness about individual articles that impact the hospitality industry. This survey also identifies the level of urgency among organizations, if any, before this regulation goes into effect.
Daniel brings to this survey extensive knowledge of the GDPR, having just co-chaired the HTNG GDPR Work Group, through which approximately 50 industry colleagues produced a hospitality-focused GDPR white paper and an accompanying self-assessment tool. These materials will provide organizations within the hospitality industry significant assistance in their preparation for the GDPR. Daniel also helped to architect hotel data flow charts as a member of the HFTP GDPR HDPO Task Force. These flowcharts illustrate data flow scenarios for the guest journey, third parties that provide hospitality services, and more.
With numerous keynote speaking engagements already completed for this year, Daniel has had many opportunities to ask hoteliers about their GDPR preparedness. What will VENZA’s confidential survey reveal about these same hoteliers and their level of concern for protecting European data subjects? Find out by taking part in this survey and reading the results in the summer edition of Hospitality Upgrade Magazine!
The survey will be available from April 9-30, 2018. Participants will not be required to provide their names to take part in the survey, so all answers will remain confidential. Please click this link now to participate.
Upon completion of the survey find out more about GDPR at these webinars scheduled for two sessions daily on April seventeenth and eighteenth with times for both Eastern Standard Time and Central European Time. You can access specific times and register for webinars by going to www.venzagroup.com/event/. All webinars will have a question and answer session at the end to help clarify any of the material covered. No two webinar sessions will be identical, so feel free to sign up for multiple sessions.
