Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Briefing

March 22, 2018 -- 8am-11am
If you have customers, clients or employees in Europe, your company will be affected by the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The new regulations come into force on May 25, 2018. 
This data privacy legislation creates a higher level of protection for consumers and stronger rules for companies than the earlier Privacy Directive. The GDPR applies to U.S. companies offering goods or services in the EU, processing personal data from Europe, or monitoring behavior within the EU. Failure to comply may result in hefty fines.
This program will describe the main elements of a proper compliance protocol and the steps needed to achieve it.  Registration under the bilateral Privacy Shield accord (replacing the earlier Safe Harbor agreement) can meet some of the compliance obligations, but additional affirmative steps will be needed for full compliance.
