On May 25, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will introduce the most significant changes to data privacy laws in a generation, including a number of new rights and obligations which potentially require significant changes to internal systems and processes. These changes will affect practically every business which operates or sells internationally, and the GDPR is likely to become the new global standard. The rules and regulatory guidance are complex and not always clear-cut, and they require businesses to make significant judgment calls.
Join us for an interactive seminar which draws on our experience of GDPR projects across a number of business sectors and will provide updates on the latest regulatory guidance and what it means for U.S. businesses, insights into key steps to take in the final weeks of preparations, and practical guidance on:
- How the transparency principles should be reflected in privacy policies
- Changes to business processes and technology to accommodate new and enhanced rights such as the right to erasure and right to data portability
- Appointing a Data Protection Officer or using an outsourced model
- How the latest guidance on data breach notification rules should feed into contract negotiations with vendors and incident response plans
- Implementing global data transfer mechanisms
There is no fee to participate. An application for standard Illinois CLE will be submitted.
