Last week, I was scheduled for a 60-minute session on Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) at the 2018 European SharePoint, Azure and Office 365 Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend the entire conference, but instead scheduled to fly in on Wednesday morning, attend the conference, attend the party and then fly back to the Netherlands on Thursday morning.
With only 65 minutes of flight time, the flight from Amsterdam (AMS) to Copenhagen (CPH) is a short flight, so I elongated my time with KLM in their lounge. After landing at Copenhagen Airport, I took a cab to Bella Center. I prepared my session and spent some time at the Ask the Experts booth for Azure AD with Peter Schmidt.
At 2 PM, I started my break-out session on Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in room 9. It was packed! The main points of this presentation were that the Compliance Manager can help assess GDPR compliancy, and that Azure AD Identity Protection, Conditional Access, Information Protection and Advanced Threat Protection can work together to create a more secure environment, towards GDPR-compliancy.
After the presentation, I headed out with Peter Schmidt. We walked to the picturesque Nyhavn, Amalienborg, Maersk’s headquarters, den lille havfrue (the little mermaid) and Copenhagen’s kastellet. before heading towards Wallmans Cirkusbygningen for the ESPC Party.
At around 11 PM we headed back to the Bella Center hotel. At 4:30 AM, a cab picked me up at the front door to deliver me at Copenhagen’s airport (CPH), in time for my 6 AM flight.
I arrived at the office around 8:30 AM for a normal day of work.
Thank your for inviting me as a SharePoint, Azure and Office 365 Conference speaker, and to all the people attending, sitting in on my session and, of course, the people who stuck around after these sessions for the interesting discussions. And Peter, thank you for showing me around in the capitol of your beautiful country.
