We collect this personal data either by correspondence or website and communication usage through cookies and other tracking technologies, including the Internet protocol (“IP”) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, your browser type and version, time zone setting. We may also collect your personal data when you fill in forms.
Personal Information We May Collect and/or Process
The Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium relies on the legal basis of consent with a clear declaration of purpose for its collection and processing. Sometimes we have a legitimate interest in processing data to better understand the needs, concerns, and interests of Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium attendees, speakers and sponsors.
We process your personal information to inform you of related events, content, and other benefits or opportunities associated with your Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium registration. We may also use this information to help the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium understand your needs and interests to better tailor our services to meet your needs.
We use the data provided by event attendees to provide them with event services, including determining the sessions likely to require the biggest rooms, and related purposes connected with the event. We also use the information for billing purposes, as some attendees do not pay at the time of registration. After the event, we de-identify the information collected from attendees and use de-identified information to review outcomes of past events and plan for future events.
We keep a record of your participation in the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium as an attendee, speaker or sponsor. This information may be used to provide you with certification services or to tell you about other events.
Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium is sponsored. We provide an attendee list to sponsors, co-sponsors, and exhibitors of our events. We may also allow sponsors, co-sponsors and/or exhibitors to send you material by mail once per sponsored event, in which case the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium engages a third-party mailing house and does not share your mailing address directly with the sponsor.
If you do not wish to have your information included in an attendee list or to receive information from sponsors, co-sponsors and/or exhibitors, you can express your preferences when you register for the event or you may contact the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium directly at email@example.com. Sharing your personal information with a sponsor allows you to receive the content for free.
We do give attendees a choice not to receive marketing messages from the sponsor or from the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium.
The site of the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium informs you about the sessions, the topics, and the venues.
The Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium uses Google Analytics to track how often people gain access to the website and to its content. Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium employs measures from simple postcards to third-party tools and service providers for automated data collection and processing purposes.
By contractual agreement, these providers will not use or share your data for any purposes outside the agreement, and only hold the data in line with our policy on data retention.
There are many features on this website for which no registration is required, so we employ other methods to collect information that we use to improve our communications and services to you.
We will collect your personal data to provide you with your certification of participation. Only authorized employees within the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium have access to your certification and personal information.
If you correspond with us by email, the postal service, or other form of communication, we may retain such correspondence and the information contained in it and use it to respond to your inquiry; to notify you of Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium other services; or to keep a record of your complaint, request, or similar concern. As always, if you wish to have the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium “erase” your personal information or otherwise refrain from communicating with you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We use different types of cookies and other technologies to collect this information. If you want to remove or block Cookies from your device at any time, you can update your browser settings (consult your browser's "help" menu to learn how to remove or block Cookies).
Note: if you ask us not to contact you by email at a certain email address, we will retain a copy of that email address on our “master do not send” list in order to comply with your no-contact request.
The Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium has a legitimate interest in maintaining personal information of those who communicate voluntarily with us.
Purposes for Processing Data
As explained above, we process your data to provide you with the goods or services you have requested or purchased from us, including the events, content and certification.

We strongly encourage you not to submit this information by email. When Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium employees receive payment card information from you by email, fax, phone it is entered as instructed and then deleted or destroyed.
Personal information we get from third parties
From time to time, the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium receives personal information about individuals from third parties.

How Do We Transmit Your Personal Data?
Your personal information may be accessed by staff or sponsors, transferred to and stored at, a location outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) in which data protection laws may be of a lower standard than in the EEA. Certain countries outside the EEA have been approved by the European Commission as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA data protection laws and therefore no additional safeguards are required to export personal information to these jurisdictions.
In countries which have not had these approvals, (see the full list here https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/adequacy-decisions_en ) we will either ask for your consent to the transfer or transfer it subject to European Commission approved contractual terms that impose equivalent data protection obligations directly on the recipient unless we are permitted under applicable data protection law to make such transfers without such formalities.
Data subject rights
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and Switzerland’s privacy laws provide certain rights for data subjects.
This Privacy Notice is intended to provide you with information about what personal data the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium collects about you and how it is used. If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
If you wish to confirm that the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium is processing your personal data, or to have access to the personal data the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium may have about you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also request information about: the purpose of the processing; the categories of personal data concerned; who else outside the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium might have received the data from us; what the source of the information was (if you didn’t provide it directly to the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium); and how long it will be stored. You have a right to correct (rectify) the record of your personal data maintained by the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium if it is inaccurate.
You may request that the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium erase that data or cease processing it, subject to certain exceptions. You may also request that the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium ceases using your data for direct marketing purposes. In many countries, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority if you have concerns about how the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium processes your personal data. When technically feasible, the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium will at your request provide your personal data to you or transmit it directly to another controller.
Reasonable access to your personal data will be provided at no cost to Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium’s attendees sponsors and speakers upon request made to the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium at email@example.com. If access cannot be provided within a reasonable time frame, the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium will provide you with a date when the information will be provided. If for some reason access is denied, the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium will provide an explanation as to why access has been denied.
For questions or complaints concerning the processing of your personal data, you can email the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to your request within 72 hours and do our best to accurately accommodate the request within 30 days of receipt. Alternatively, if you are located in the European Union, you can also have recourse to the European Data Protection Supervisor or with your nation’s data protection authority.
Security of your information
To help protect the privacy of data you transmit through use of this website, we maintain physical, technical and administrative safeguards. We update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis.
We restrict access to your personal data to those employees who need to know that information to provide benefits or services to you. In addition, we train our employees about the importance of confidentiality and maintaining the privacy and security of your information. We commit to taking appropriate disciplinary measures to enforce our employees' privacy responsibilities.
Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium continues to work on implementing reasonable technical and administrative measures to safeguard and prevent any unauthorized processing of your personal data. This includes but is not limited to the combined use of physical and technical access controls, encryption, secure transmission, data minimization, and consolidation on our systems.
Data storage and retention
Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium will store your data for as long as necessary for the purposes it was collected and regulatory requirements. So, if information is used for two purposes, we will retain it until the purpose with the latest period expires; but we will stop using it for the purpose with a shorter period one that period expires.
Obsolete and useless data will be securely destroyed. Your personal data is stored by the Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium on its servers. Our retention periods are based on event’s needs and your information that is no longer needed is either irreversibly anonymized (and the anonymized information may be retained) or securely destroyed.
For more information on where and how long your personal data is stored, and for more information on your rights of erasure and portability, please contact at email@example.com.
Changes in this Privacy Notice
We therefore encourage you to review them when you visit the Website from time to time to stay informed of how we are using personal information.
