Following on from the success of CompTIA’s ChannelCon event in Austin, channel organisations from across Europe and beyond have been invited to CompTIA EMEACon in London. The October event, that runs across two days from the 17th to the 18th, will bring IT execs together to network and share best practices that can be directly actioned in work.

Hosted at etc.venues County Hall, the event will kick off with a session around GDPR compliance that will likely be of interest to all in attendance. Over the two-day event, attendees will be invited to a number of sessions covering topics like IT security, Digital Transformation, compliance and best practices. Keynote speakers include Eliza Manningham-Buller, Former Head of British Security Service MI5, several attendees from IBM and CompTIA President and CEO Todd Thibodeaux.

Redstor will be exhibiting throughout the show, at stand 10, and will be taking the opportunity to network and to meet with new and existing channel partners. We’ll be talking about GDPR compliance and how the regulation effects data protection with regards to backup and archiving. We may even have a free pen or two to give away so if you’re at the show be sure to stop by.
