The Sea Pines Resort is a 5,000-acre luxury family beach resort in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina that has received dozens of awards and accolades in its 50-year history. It is home to the annual PGA TOUR, sits on the Atlantic Ocean and Calibogue Sound, and features peerless accommodations and experiences that attract travelers from all over the world. But diverse guests require compliance with diverse laws which is a challenge welcomed by Sea Pines Resorts management and staff.

“When you talk about extra-territorial privacy and data protection laws like GDPR and CCPA, compliance can be a colossal undertaking,” Dennis Basinger, Director of Information Security and Technology at Sea Pines Resorts said. “Plenty of our guests are EU citizens or California residents, and, with VENZA’s help, we’re making every effort possible to ensure we are respectful of the rights afforded to them by GDPR, CCPA, and other regulations.”

VENZA launched its privacy management program that includes access to the Privacy Nexus SaaS platform in 2019. Since then, it has been constantly updated and includes multiple functionalities to help hospitality customers achieve compliance such as its data inventory, data subject request management, incident and breach management, and third-party management.

“You can’t protect things you don’t know you have, and you can’t value things that haven’t been appraised,” said Juli Barter, Vice President of Sales at VENZA. “Being compliant with these imposing regulations is not a small thing. Take those requirements and add in the complexity of a hotel’s IT infrastructure and data practices, and you quickly realize that a guiding hand is needed and that’s what VENZA strives to be.”

While difficult, organizations that comply with the fundamental principles of most data protection laws will find their customer’s trust and support grow exponentially. Compliance is a journey and as your guide, VENZA aims to ensure that hoteliers reap the maximum benefits from their necessary investment in data protection and privacy.
