The potential risks to organisations for non-compliance include fines of up to 4% of Global Turnover or €20M.

Join Zinopy and a panel of experts at The Dean Hotel in Dublin followed by evening drinks, BBQ and networking on the Terrace.
You will gain essential insights into the main provisions of the Regulation, practical guidance to help organisations start to prepare for the EU GDPR and what they can do on the ground to improve data governance, reduce the risk of data loss and lower compliance costs.

- Key changes and impact for Irish organisations
- Why is the GDPR important?
- Key legal implications of the GDPR
- Managing a data breach – Prevention, detection and mitigation of a data breach

Good grief!: Death, existenz, and the virtues of a post-digital era
Trinity Long Room Hub, Neill Theatre Trinity College, Dublin
Recent research shows that while some people grieve and memorialise death online, some young people abandon social media in favour of ‘real life’ for the sake of shared grieving. Prof Charles Ess will review recent research, beginning with new forms of digitally-mediated healing and comfort, and demonstrate how these findings signal and index broader developments.
Charles Ess is Professor of Media Studies in the Department of Media & Communication at the University of Oslo, Norway. He works at the intersections of philosophy, computing, applied ethics, comparative philosophy, and media studies, with specific focus on research ethics, Digital Religion, and virtue ethics in media and communication, specifically social robots.

itSMF How do you deliver consistent quality of IT Services to your customers over 150 Countries?
ICS, 87-89 Pembroke Road, Dublin 4
ESP is a world class global IT solutions business with headquarters in the UK, supported by regional service delivery hubs in Hong Kong, Trinidad, Singapore, Colombia and Guam.
They provide flexible 24/7 service desk, onsite and field services in over 150 countries worldwide and are a respected market leader with an enviable and loyal customer base of global, national and local businesses
As ESP has grown and their markets expand, the challenge thrown down to them has been to consistently deliver a quality service across a dynamically changing customer base, which by its nature has meant extending their services across multiple countries.
Through a combination of ESP staff and a network of like minded partner companies, they need to deliver the same service to their customers whether its being delivered in the UK, Mexico, Laos or Guatemala. The customer experience, touch points and controls need to be consistent and they need to be able to ensure the same quality of service.
So the gauntlet that was thrown down five years ago was how to achieve this, whilst also facing the fact that the company was growing at a rate of 20% per year and constantly evolving its service offerings.
The answers to the ‘how’ will hopefully be answered during the presentation, but a combination of best practice, investment in great toolsets and people, continuous reviewing and improving plus a large amount of hard work and commitment from the team has meant they have been able to rise to the challenge.

Espion: Adopting a multi-layered approach to ransomware defence
Conrad Hotel, Dublin 2
In this seminar Espion and cloud partner Zscaler will provide practical advice on how organisations should be developing and executing a multi-layered defensive strategy to protect their business against the rising threat of ransomware.
A ransomware infection can be devastating to an organization and recovery can be a difficult, extensive process without expert advice. An overwhelming amount of businesses have fallen victim in recent months, facing loss of sensitive information, disruption to regular operations, financial losses as well as often irreversible reputational damage.
Espion advises organisations to take a multi-layered approach to their defensive strategy; from raising security awareness across their organization to leveraging the cloud to apply extensive overarching system defences – a one stop shop solution is not sufficient.
– The evolution of ransomware – how it has evolved, the current threat landscape and why organizations need to act now
– How organisations fall victim – the most common infection methods examined
– What a ransomware attack looks like – including real life examples
– Ten steps to take immediately following a suspected incident
– A multi-layered approach – how to prevent incidents through a multi-layered defence
– The people factor – implementing security awareness across your entire organisation
The seminar will be followed by a panel Q&A session.
– Chris Hodson M.Inst.ISP, director of information security EMEA, Zscaler
– Conor Gavin, lead consultant, Espion – a BSI Professional Services Company

SIP – Give yourself a global voice by making communication simple
Let IDC and BT unlock the secrets to achieve truly successful SIP – (Session Initiation Protocol) enabled global communications.
Businesses are rising to the challenge of market globalisation by becoming stateless – selling streamlined products and services to an increasingly integrated global economy.
How do businesses with a global footprint simplify and optimise communications? Enterprise voice – enabled by SIP – remains a critical business service, as well as a vital stepping-stone to improving employee collaboration and creating efficient operations.
To connect people across your organisation (regardless of region), you need to make the most of SIP. And ‘getting it right’ is essential to your organisation’s efforts to be more competitive, control costs and bring a distributed international workforce together.
It all starts with your network. Consolidating SIP enterprise voice services with your IP data network gives you the opportunity to standardise your communications and provide connectivity that’s resilient, flexible and easier to scale to achieve the following objectives:
– Reducing the complexity and cost of global communication
– Extending your global reach to new markets
– Increasing the productivity of your workforce through unified communications and collaboration
In our webinar we’ll show you how to:
– Use Global SIP to create a future-proof network that gives you greater control over services and
– Reduces your costs
– Make the most of SIP by consolidating voice across multiple sites on a global WAN
– Avoid the common mistakes organisations make when rolling out SIP trunks globally
Jason Andersson, Network Analyst, IDC Enterprise.
Jason will help you understand how a global application of enterprise SIP can help you on your digital transformation journey – as well as how up-to-date voice services will benefit your business.
