About the event

Any organisation that wishes to operate in the modern business landscape has no choice but to give strict attention to digital compliance.

Users are extremely concerned about the privacy of their information. To build trust, they need to know that your business has a strong commitment to protecting their sensitive information. That means adhering to the rules and regulations of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and South Africa’s POPIA (Protection of Personal Information Act).

We have joined forces with Veeam, as we explore the intricacies of data compliance, and learn how Veeam’s automated solutions enable your organisation to fully adhere to the no-nonsense standards of the GDPR and POPIA with minimal disruption to business continuity.

Leading the talks are Ian Engelbrecht, Technical Sales Manager at Veeam Africa, and Darren Naidu, Partner Manager at Veeam Africa. They will take us through the key points to consider regarding data compliance and how Veeam’s solutions offer unrivalled service.
