Cybertonica GDPR reality discussion event

On 7th March, Cybertonica held an evening to have an open and frank discussion about The GDPR Reality at Level39, the world’s most connected community for FinTech and cybersecurity supporting fast-growth businesses. Cybertonica received a tremendous amount of interest and the event was sold out, more than 260 people applied to join us on the day!

The GDPR Reality brought together 7 speakers from the payments and FinTech industries to discuss how GDPR will affect businesses. They also shared their insights on the emerging cyber threats.

The event was chaired by Andrea Dunlop, CEO Acquiring and Card Solutions at Paysafe. Andrea opened the evening with her Keynote Address, Navigating 2018’s Legislative Trifecta: Turning challenges into opportunities. She addressed that the focus on data security and customer privacy has been increasing over the past number of years and in order to succeed in this new world, businesses need an inherent appreciation of data protection and customer privacy, placing both at the very core of what they do. She also presented the challenges and opportunities new regulations bring for financial services.
