Engage 2018

May 22-23, 2018

BCC is proud to be associated once again with Engage 2018. Engage is the biggest user group in Europe focusing on IBM Collaboration Solutions.

One of the hot topics at the moment is GDPR and our focus at Engage will be all around Domino security in a GDPR world.

GDPR has been at the centre of BCC’s focus for the past 20 years. Security and data protection are buried deeply in the DNA of the company.

Come and have a look how AdminTool provides procedures to grant and control access rights to your data and how it handles the demand for the right to be forgotten.

We also will showcase how DominoProtect can monitor access to your data and  prevent unauthorised data access even for people who have full admin rights.

Find out how MailProtect can help to intercept emails that hold sensitive data and get sent by your staff without the required encryption.

Come and see us at the conference. Don’t worry if you can’t make it, just get in touch and we can talk.

Make Domino GDPR Compliant

Join our 20 minute lightning talk at BCC's booth #14, Tuesday 22nd May 16:45 & Wednesday 23rd May 10:15.

We hope you are able to join us on the 22nd and 23rd of May, 2018 for what will be an amazing event. Engage 2018 will be held on the SS Rotterdam.

We will also be giving away an awesome prize at the event, so make sure you stop by the booth and drop your business card into our prize draw for your chance to win.

Schedule a meeting with our attendees: Stephanie Heit, Sharon James, Tim Clark 



22-23 May 2018
Every year we try to organize a major event, and an extra afternoon meeting. Every time we are happily surprised by the number of people that show up. A positive sign for sure. In Q3 of 2012 we announced that our scope expanded to include The Netherlands. BLUG then stood for 'Benelux Lotus User Group'. When IBM decided the name Lotus was no longer viable, we followed and changed the name of the BLUG events to 'Engage', at the end of 2013. In March 2016 we finally managed to officially change the name for the non-profit organisation to 'Engage User Group'..
