A while ago, we covered a case study our partner Omnis Systems did with Intel and today, the Omnis team is gearing up for the Luxembourg Data Protection Days, taking place May 29 and 30 at Alvisse Parc Hotel in Luxembourg.
Proud to be the only Value Added Distributor in Europe specialised in Open Source, Omnis Systems blogged about the event, noting:
“Suddenly” the European Regulation 16/679, better known as GDPR, has come into force. We all heard about it, many were ready for it well in advance, many are still working to make their organisation compliant but all, without exceptions, will be working to keep their organisations compliant over time.
GDPR isn’t a box ticking exercise on some forms that can then be archived as “Job Done”, compliance is a continuous process which must be part of any organisation’s standard procedures involving current/future employees processing personal data and all the IT infrastructures, internal and third parties, that are processing data.
At the “Luxembourg Data Protection Days”, of which Omnis Systems is a Gold Sponsor, we will present some of the platforms, many of which Open Source, that can help organisations taking back control of the data they are processing to allow them to be, not only more efficient and reduce their IT costs, but also capable of guaranteeing their customers they care about their Privacy.
Of course, the team will present a series of self-hosted solutions, including Nextcloud. We just released a GDPR Compliance Kit for our customers which helps guide them through the complicated compliance regulation! Because, as Omnis points out:
Keep in mind that using Public Cloud services does not transfer all your liabilities, in case of data breach, to the data processor (Cloud provider) so you may as well evaluate tools that put you in control of the data you are processing.
