Collabsphere (MWLUG) 2018

July 23-25, 2018

MWLUG has been rebranded to Collabsphere for 2018. Come join us in Ann Arbor, Michigan on July 23-25, 2018 for the tenth annual MWLUG/CollabSphere conference. Collabsphere is one of the only User Groups in the US focusing on IBM Collaboration Solutions and BCC are proud to be sponsoring this event again.

One of the hot topics at the moment is GDPR and our focus at Collabsphere 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.

We hope you are able to join us on the July 23-25, 2018.  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, Tim Clark

Domino security in a GDPR world

The fines for EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on the 25th of May 2018. Think it doesn’t affect you? It affects those providing products or services to EU customers, and to those who process and hold their data. GDPR is not just about securing data, data management, the justification for keeping it, and how it can be removed is all part of the bigger GDPR picture. We will walk you through a scenario explaining the guiding principles of GDPR, how it may affect your organisation, how you can secure your Domino environment to comply with the regulations – without it being as boring as watching paint dry. .
