GDPR - The Countdown Continues

6 October 2017
Presenters: Etienne Drouard

On 25 May 2018, the much anticipated General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. The European Commission promises that the new regulation ‘will establish one single set of rules which will make it simpler and cheaper for companies to do business in the EU’. However, GDPR also threatens to significantly increase fines for non-compliance, and will affect all companies, even those located outside the EU, doing business with the EU. In addition, on 10 January 2017, the European Commission issued a draft “ePrivacy” Regulation which will set up stricter rules on online collection of personal, localization and technical traffic data from EU residents.

This interactive webinar, co-hosted with ACC Europe in collaboration with K&L Gates, to addresses some of the following questions:

  1. Global impact, more duties, higher sanctions: how companies should prioritize their compliance program?
  2. How to choose between consent, contractual requirement and legitimate business purposes?
  3. Privacy Impact assessments and internal organization around a DPO: mixing top-down and bottom-up approaches
  4. Anticipating technical requirements resulting from the GDPR and ePrivacy Regulation: evidencing consent, data breach, data retention and data portability
  5. Turning regulatory requirements into business opportunities: developing awareness, synergies and empowering business stakeholders
