In this article, we give you tips for data protection and quality in webinars and live streaming.

The guest was Michael Westphalfounder and managing director of TV1 at the podcast of Florian Gypser from corporate studio. The two experts discussed the topic of data protection in webinars and live streaming. Companies must ensure that personal data such as names, email addresses and IP addresses are protected.
