GDPR is an EU regulation that requires businesses to protect personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states.  The new requirements go into effect May 25, 2018 and extend the scope of EU data protection laws to all foreign companies processing data of EU residents.  Non-compliance could cost companies dearly.

The seminar will help business professionals understand the proper compliance protocol, learn the process of registering under the bi-lateral Privacy Shield accord, and get suggestions on how to create a company compliance program to address the new GDPR requirements.
