GDPR : 4 letters, big trouble ? Get up to speed on EU data privacy regulation

February 7, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm PST

GDPR : 4 letters, big trouble ? Get up to speed on EU data privacy regulation

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to European citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

As long as you store personal data on a European citizen, whether you are a EU company or not, you should be concerned with GDPR.

As such, this event aims at demystifying these 4 big letters and give clues as to what your company should do to get ahead of the game on GDPR. In order to do so, we have invited a legal expert, as well as stakeholders in companies of different sizes, to share their experience with us.
