Data Centre Risk Radar - Navigating the Compliance Minefield

Data Centre Risk Radar

Sponsored by



This session will look at the compliance landscape. Data centre operators struggle to keep abreast of the alphabet soup of regulatory obligations placed upon them. Compliance, however, is not optional and ignorance of the law is not viewed as an acceptable excuse by regulators. So this complexity is worrying, especially where the reputational risk or penalties are severe.

This session will provide a whistle-stop tour through the issues of most concern to operators, followed by a more in-depth look at two regulations likely to be causing sleepless nights (probably GDPR and MCPD). There will be plenty of Q&A and a chance to grill speakers and stakeholders afterwards over refreshments.
