The pandemic pushed the entire ecosystem of events and organizations to modulate their way of functioning. As all the organizations made the transition from physical events to virtual events of all formats, scales & sizes, data security came into play. When the organizations initially began with the team meetings, catch-up sessions, award ceremonies, etc, not much around data security was spoken about. But as the organizations progressed to hosting their AGMs, Town Halls, Marketing meet-up, etc, where the organizational structure, strategies, revenues, policies, goals, etc were discussed, the data security came into immediate functioning. Organizations became skeptical about the thought of sharing confidential information with other participants virtually.
With the adoption of virtual hybrid events, Data privacy and security have become mainstream. As people started realizing the value of their personal data, they have started scrutinizing Virtual event platforms that abide by data privacy and security and adhere to transparency and compliance.
