ARE YOU READY FOR GDPR?

June 01, 2017

Come listen to industry experts and in-house privacy officers on how best to prepare.

Please join us on June 5, 2017 for a seminar and discussion on major EU privacy developments impacting US businesses in the upcoming year.

The forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most sweeping change to the data protection landscape in the past 20 years and will become effective in just a year’s time. GDPR is not just the next incremental change to data privacy regulations. Rather, its impact will be felt by every organization that does business in the EU or handles personal information of EU citizens in any manner. Compliance with GDPR will require businesses to implement not only new procedures for data management and processing but also security and functional specifications that may affect product roadmaps and organizational priorities. Regulators have already signaled that they intend to aggressively pursue fines and actions for companies found not to be in compliance.

At this seminar, EU privacy expert Chris Jeffery, from the law firm of Taylor Wessing, will provide an update on the coming regulatory guidance. The presentation will be followed by a panel, moderated byStoel Rives partner Steve Lovett, including Anne Bradley (Chief Privacy Counsel and Global Counsel for Marketing and Digital Commerce  at Nike, Inc.), David Fowler (Head of Privacy and Compliance at Act-On Software), Beth Sipula (Senior Privacy Consultant at TRUSTe), and Alex Wall (Senior Counsel & Global Privacy Officer at RADAR, Inc.), that will discuss how organizations of various sizes and industries are preparing for the implementation of GDPR in 2018, and an extended Q&A session. We will conclude the event with a happy hour to give all an additional opportunity to catch up and further discuss the topic.
