A daily news source as the industry prepares for a compliance date of May 25, 2018

Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®), an international nonprofit hospitality association, announced today the launch of its new GDPR Bytes website. GDPR Bytes is an aggregated content destination where users will find the latest news all in one place. The cross-platform site serves as a daily news outlet that brings together specific publications, reports, feature articles, white papers and more.

As hospitality companies conducting business in Europe prepare to make operational changes to conform with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), HFTP and its HDPO Task Force, consisting of 23 industry experts from around the globe, have been working to increase GDPR awareness as well as develop educational resources to benefit the industry at large. In addition to GDPR Bytes, HFTP has released an extensive range of available GDPR tools including, but not limited to: publications; compliance tools; webinars; blogs; podcasts; more.

"In order to comply with GDPR, EU-based organizations – as well as any organization handling personal information from EU citizens – should guarantee that proper policies and procedures are being followed," said Frank Wolfe, CEO at HFTP. "GDPR tools and resources, created by HFTP and the HFTP HDPO Task Force, are immediately available to help organizations successfully navigate how to implement the necessary changes, and reduce the risk of non-compliance."

GDPR Bytes allows companies to publish their content to the site; registered users receive the additional benefit of having their content published to both GDPR Bytes as well as PineappleSearch.com, the world's only hospitality-specific search engine. For those interested in publishing content or advertising on GDPR Bytes, please contact HFTP Chief Marketing Officer Jennifer Lee, CAE at jennifer.lee@hftp.org or +1 (512) 220-4023.
