GDPR Beyond Borders: Expert Guidance for Global Brands:
While a lot has been said about how GDPR is going to change data privacy practices in the EU, it is also a policy that is affecting businesses all around the world. Companies across the US in particular are scrambling to ensure they are meeting the requirements under GDPR, not only to ensure compliance with their EU customers but also as an opportunity to stay ahead of the curve on future privacy legislation that will follow the path carved by GDPR.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will affect up to 80% of U.S. businesses. If your company is noncompliant as of May 25, 2018 you run the risk of facing legal action by Data Protection Authorities or lawsuits filed by EU citizens. To help make sure you and other leadings brands are compliant, we convened expert panels and workshops in New York City to answer some key burning questions for American businesses.
We captured the entire event for you to consume how and where you prefer – bite-sized videos, full videos from the event, and a podcast. Our panel of lawmakers, lawyers, technology and marketing experts from Europe and the U.S. answered the following questions:
- What does GDPR mean for the future of your business?
- What are the consequences for businesses found not to be respecting GDPR?
- Who will be a target for potential fines and class action lawsuits?
- What are the steps that your legal, marketing, and technical teams need to complete before the regulation comes into effect May 25, 2018?
Does it feel like GDPR is going over your head? Do you wish that you could get just the facts, plain and simple? In this session, a leading expert will nix the legal jargon to explain what the new EU data protection regulation is and why it matters to your company in language that you can understand. Our keynote, Pierre-Nicolas Schwab, kicks things off.
