For over 18 years, Cvent has been committed to protecting the privacy and security of customer and attendee information, including processes and safeguards relevant to personal data.
Cvent has implemented a very robust set of policies, procedures, and protocols in order to ensure that you and your clients' data remain safe and confidential, including using industry leading 256-bit encryption to secure all client data, both at rest and in transit, using two-factor authentication, and more.

Another way we protect our clients, is by entering into Data Processing Agreements/Model Clauses with each of clients and sub-processors.

We have already implemented a new Data Processing Agreement that satisfies the GDPR requirements.
Cvent welcomes the new, robust requirements for data protection, security, and compliance that the EU-US Privacy Shield framework and EU GDPR brings.
