Time: 8:00AM

Location: Washington, DC

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation goes into effect May 25, 2018. With the prospect of sky-high fines and beefed-up enforcement agencies, it’s critical to make sure your organization is ready by the deadline. Many US companies are racing against the clock to determine whether they need to appoint a data protection officer, conduct data impact assessments, review and renegotiate their contracts, update their data protection policies, or meet other requirements of the GDPR. 

This seminar will help make sure you are on the right course and help you reach your goal of achieving GDPR compliance on time.

The seminar will include two sessions (see agenda for details):

GDPR Essentials: This session covers the key aspects of the GDPR. 

GDPR Hot Topics: This session will do a deeper dive into some critical questions where the GDPR intersects with other laws and legal decisions.
