UTAX announces a UK data security inspired series of Product Demonstration Days for dealers and prospective dealers who are looking to offer a reliable product range of not only security solutions but also software and hardware solutions to aid GDPR compliancy.
GDPR is coming into effect on 25th May 2018 and will introduce a number of new data protection obligations for organisations and new rights for individuals, which will affect companies across all markets and sectors.
As GDPR is based, in part, on the stringent German data protection programme, UTAX is in an excellent position to ensure that dealers are able to provide their customers with the best tools to assist in working towards GDPR compliancy within the print environment. Once people acknowledge that printers store data, the risks become obvious. A data leak could cause huge reputational damage to a company as well as substantial fines in light of the new regulations.
The UTAX Partner Roadshows will include a brief introduction to GDPR and the impact it may have on the print environment from Paul Day, Technical Director at Filestream Document Management, and a presentation by UTAX’s Solutions experts as well as an opportunity for product demonstrations and Q&A’s.
“I’m delighted to be working with UTAX on this series of demonstration days particularly at a time when data security is critical” comments Paul Day, Technical Director at Filestream Document Management and Certified EU GDPR Practitioner.
Aimed at Dealer Principals, Sales Managers and Service Managers, the UTAX Product Demonstration Days will take place throughout the country between April 2018 and March 2019. UTAX’s aim is to provide dealers with the information they need to best support their customer’s needs with regards to GDPR compliancy related to print management.
Shaun Wilkinson, UTAX (UK)’s Managing Director comments “What makes UTAX different is that we work together with our business partners, and support them with well-conceived advice. By holding this series of security inspired roadshows we aren’t claiming to be GDPR experts but we are confident that the experts we bring in are able to offer a unique approach to assisting our dealers with helping their customers in working towards GDPR compliancy.”
