HTNG Delivers GDPR for Hospitality White Paper
March 13, 2018 11:31am
HTNG's GDPR for Hospitality Workgroup produced a framework and a self-assessment tool to help the hospitality industry prepare for the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The GDPR goes into effect on May 25, 2018; at that time, it will replace the EU's earlier Data Protection Directive (1995). This law governing PII will affect global hospitality chains, trading partners and vendors who conduct business within the European region, whether or not they are located in the European region.
The executive-level white paper describes key considerations, use cases and impacts of these regulations for the hospitality industry. HTNG's GDPR for Hospitality Workgroup also produced a GDPR assessment tool to help professionals in the industry evaluate their company's ability to comply with the new regulation.
Over 50 companies participated in HTNG's GDPR for Hospitality Workgroup. The group was led by Co-chairs John Bell of Ajontech, Chris Farrar of DOCOMO interTouch, Daniel Johnson of VENZA and Richard Sheinis of Hall Booth Smith, P.C.
The GDPR for Hospitality White Paper and Self-Assessment can be downloaded under the "Applicable to most software systems" section on HTNG's Technical Specifications page.
