GDPR is Coming, Five Things You Can Do Now To Prepare

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25, 2018. GDPR significantly increases the requirements imposed on companies touching the personal data of EU citizens and increases oversight by the EU member states’ data protection authorities with massive consequences for non-compliance.

Join of us for an interactive discussion of the practical steps your business can take now to comply with the GDPR. Legal experts in data security will:

  • Provide an update on the GDPR
  • Highlight key areas of risk associated with the GDPR by walking through a hypothetical day in the life of an in-house counsel faced with GDPR issues
  • Consider the impact of Brexit and identify business-focused steps to help manage the risks associated with the GDPR

The discussion will end with a Q&A session where you will have the opportunity to discuss key issues and practical tips with the panel.
