    Hospitality organizations in Florida, Texas, the Southwest and other winter-season locations have been increasingly turning to foreign nationals to staff for their busy times of year with J-1 and H-2B visas. In recent months, there has been much discussion by the administration about J-1 visas whether the government will end J-1 visas for the hospitality industry altogether.

These issues, combined with low unemployment, have left many hospitality organizations scrambling to find qualified and reliable staff.

  • GDPR data security compliance: What does it mean for your club?

    Recorded On: 01/11/2018

    Join Charles Barley Jr., Director, Risk Advisory Services and Nico Guetatchew, Supervisor, Risk Advisory Services of RSM US LLP as they present on the complexities of this new regulation and how you can prepare.

    Have you started your preparations for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance? GDPR was recently ratified to strengthen and unify data protection for all European Union (EU) residents—whether their data resides in the EU or not. GDPR is applicable to almost every organization worldwide that collects or processes data on EU residents, including those not based in Europe and even those without any European operations.

    Many private clubs underestimate the amount of EU data they hold, and therefore may not understand the potential effect of GDPR legislation. For example, EU resident data may be stored in everything from information technology (IT) systems and portable media devices to spreadsheets and email archives. Clubs must examine data privacy protocols for primary sources of data, as well as all other sources and forms, including club membership, employee and guest data.

    The new GDPR rules will significantly disrupt how organizations store, manage and process personal data. Substantial financial penalties and reputational damage may be incurred for noncompliance, up to €20M or 4 percent of an organization’s global revenue, whichever is higher. Register today to:

    • Understand what GDPR is
    • Hear how it may apply to the private club industry
    • Learn how to develop a road map for compliance

    Join Charles Barley Jr., Director, Risk Advisory Services and Nico Guetatchew, Supervisor, Risk Advisory Services of RSM US LLP as they present on the complexities of this new regulation and how you can prepare.
