Introduced in 2016, the General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679)—or GDPR—was created for the purpose of strengthening the European Union’s (EU) procedures and practices related to data protection. GDPR will impact organisations worldwide and implement maximum fines of up to €20,000,000 (or 4% of global turnover) if they fail to ensure compliance. Join BitSight’s Ewen O’Brien and Metro Bank’s Julian Parkin as they discuss:
- The checklist organisations should review to align their business with GDPR.
- Noteworthy articles within GDPR and how they affect data governance/usage.
- BitSight’s recommendations for monitoring the GDPR compliance of third party vendors.

What do financial services firms need to know, and need to do, between now and the 2018 PSD II deadline?
We're filming live at the London Stock Exchange where viewers can get their questions answered live by our experts.
PSD II could have a seismic impact on financial services. It has the potential to fundamentally change the way customers engage with institutions, and how these customers access financial services. There is also potential for open banking to create a platform to drive competition and real innovation in the industry.
But there are also big challenges and threats – data security and liability, to the operating models of financial institutions and from new entrants and third-party providers.
With just over a year to go before the compliance deadline in January 2018 the clock is ticking. Our experts will consider how firms should be looking to strike a balance between regulatory compliance and making the most of the opportunities for innovation afforded by PSD II.
Operators are deploying coherent 100G optical technology in their core networks to reap the benefits of higher capacity, longer reach, easier management and lower costs.

Enterprises are evolving their vSphere environments from standard DR configurations to high availability (HA) architectures. VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster is a key capability in this evolution. Parallel to this, companies are embracing hybrid cloud and AWS in particular. In many cases enterprises treat AWS as a passive DR site. But what if you could evolve AWS to be part of an HA stretch cluster? That’s where software-defined storage (SDS) comes in.
SDS solutions provide the flexibility to run on commodity servers as well as cloud computing instances. Couple that with advanced multi-site replication, per-VM storage policies, deduplication, snapshotting, cloning, and VMware’s recent announcement with AWS, and SDS is now the ideal enabler for automated failover in a hybrid cloud stretched cluster.
In this session we’ll:
- Provide an architecture for software-defined storage running a stretched cluster between a private vSphere cloud and AWS.
- Discuss how this provides seamless failover, HA, DR, and cloud bursting—all at scale.
- Highlight how data efficiency techniques like deduplication, thin provisioning, auto-tiering, and caching optimize hybrid cloud economics.
