CANCELLED – Evening Event – IT Security

ABIAL warmly invites all its members – and guests – to an early evening of presentations on IT security and data protection. These topics are concerns that we all recognise – and stories of data leaks, e-mail hacking, and IT fraud all still seem to appear in our newspapers every day.

What should you be worried about? And do you know about the EU’s new “General Data Protection Regulation”? Vincent Villers, PwC Luxembourg’s lead partner advising on IT security matters, will warn us about some of the current threats. He will focus on two topics. Frédéric Vonner, a PwC Luxembourg partner, is a specialist adviser on data protection law and practice, an area where regulation is growing and tightening.
