iGB Live!: Why is your session important for delegates?
Tatjana Klaeser (TK): Hear about the latest developments in European law regarding the Payment Services Directive, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), AML. The panellists will also discuss what impact the European Commission’s decision to withdraw the infringement cases has on regulation of the gambling market in Europe.
iGB Live: How is your topic relevant to our industry?
TK: Even when companies are in line from a gaming regulation perspective, exposure may emerge from other segments of industry not under direct control of gaming operators, yet crucial to operating their website. Compliance is at the crossroads of all these industry segments. A good understanding of the requirements deriving from a fragmented regulatory environment will safeguard the continuity of operations over time.
iGB Live!: What is the one thing you hope delegates get out of your session?
TK: The aim of the session is for delegates to take something back home with them that they could not have found through research or analysis but that derives from the unique experience and know how shared by the panellists.
iGB Live!: Why choose iGB Live! as the event to share your findings?
