2016 EU Privacy Webinar

Past Event - Video Available | May.18.2016

Webinar

In April, the long awaited General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR“) was finally adopted putting businesses on high alert that they now have two years to prepare. 

The GDPR transforms EU privacy laws and strengthens EU citizens' rights imposing significant burdens on businesses who collect and use personal information originating from the EU.  This has implications not only in the EU but globally. Businesses around the world that wish to operate in the EU will need to comply with the new laws.
