Event description

Description

Make plans to attend this two-hour workshop for an overview of Europe's upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the US-EU Privacy Shield legislation. Learn how to comply, the risks of non-compliance, and resources available to your company.

The European Union adopted a new piece of data privacy legislation called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2015. Under the GDPR, businesses must tell consumers that they are collecting data, what they intend to use it for, and to whom it will be disclosed. However, there is a two-year transition period to allow companies to comply with the numerous new requirements introduced. The transition period will end on May 25, 2018. Companies should start the compliance process as soon as possible with assistance of legal counsel. Non-compliant companies could be subject to enforcement actions and/or fines by European agencies.

At this workshop, you will:

  • Find out why the European Union is a major market for U.S. businesses

  • Gain in-depth knowledge about GDPR requirements, including accountability, security, and privacy

  • Understand the compliance process and what tools should be put in place

  • And, learn how to register for Privacy Shield

Speakers include:

Isabelle Roccia: Policy Advisor, U.S. Mission to the European Union. Isabelle served on the negotiating team of the “EU-U.S. Privacy Shield” and the U.S. delega­tion for the U.S.-EU Cyber Dialogue.

Michelle Sylvester-Jose: International Trade Special­ist, Office of Digital Services Industries. Michelle is con­sidered an expert on the Privacy Shield.

Cost: $25.00.
