Cloud adoption continues to grow at unprecedented rates, raising concerns about data privacy and also about data residency, especially for organisations considering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) using the cloud.

To address these important issues, Sure has teamed up with local data protection legislation expert Emma Martins and John Davison, CTO of CIbased First Central Group who are already benefiting from Sure’s cloud infrastructure.

At this breakfast briefing we’ll be discussing

  • The importance of data security and data sovereignty in an ever-changing, connected environment
  • Where your data is when it’s in the cloud and who has (or can gain) access to it
  • Regulations and policies that govern data privacy today and in the future including the impact of GDPR
  • Cloud from a customer perspective – the business benefits of adopting Cloud solutions in place of on-premise IT infrastructure


  • 08:00 – Registration opens / breakfast served

We really hope you can join us!
