Despite having over 30 years of Information Technology experience, John Schaefer is not your typical computer geek. John has been managing international teams since joining Nissan North America 22 years ago. Working with non-native English speakers allowed him to hone his ability to communicate clearly in order to reach a common goal.
John’s been featured in several information technology publications and guest lectured at Vanderbilt University, where he’s garnered praise for his ability to explain complex and technical information in a way that’s easy for anyone to understand. In his current role of Chief Information Security Architect, John continues to provide thought leadership in the areas of information security, compliance, and risk management.
Customer data is your most valuable asset, but it can become your biggest liability if it's not protected. New regulations (like GDPR) are designed to protect consumers, but you may be left wondering how they affect your travel agency business. John will help you learn some best practices for collecting and handling customer data securely, how to comply with various regulations, and what to do if the worst happens and you have a data breach.
John's session "Covering Your ASSets" will take place on February 9, 2019 at 4:00 pm.
