Click here for slides Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation took effect on May 25th, 2018. A far-reaching legal framework, the GDPR represents a paradigm shift in data privacy, not only in the European Union, but across all democratic countries. Now, in America, voices are rising on both sides of the aisle in favor of reining in major tech companies. A version of the GDPR will likely enter the American scene soon. What are you doing to prepare? In this session, we’ll explain what data privacy’s new normal looks like in the European Union. We’ll connect that to the United States, explaining how these rules might migrate into American business and tech—and how they already have, in the form of a program called Privacy Shield. We’ll help you prepare for the future’s privacy climate and show you what you can do to protect your business. This informational session is not meant to function as legal advice.
