How the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Will Affect Your Business!

Course Overview

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, comes into effect May 25, 2018. GDPR will significantly change how public and private sector organizations handle the information of their customers. Now, you might be thinking to yourself, “Nothing to worry about here, we only do business in the U.S., and have no operations at all in the EU [European Union].” Well, sorry to disappoint, but that’s not really an accurate statement.

In fact, the General Data Protection Regulation will most definitely impact U.S. companies. For example, U.S. businesses that have a web presence and market products in the EU, must adhere to and comply with the GDPR. So, let’s all buckle up as we explore the details behind GDPR and hear advice and best practices from attorney and technologist, Peter Vogel, that will help your organization to meet the privacy expectations of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation.
