GDPR Beyond Borders: Expert Guidance for Global Brands
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will affect up to 80% of U.S. businesses.* If your company is noncompliant on May 25, you’ll run the risk of facing legal action by Data Protection Authorities or lawsuits filed by EU citizens. Let’s make sure you’re ready. Join us for GDPR Beyond Borders.
February 22, 150 decision-makers will gather in New York City to listen to our panel of lawmakers, lawyers, technology and marketing experts from two separate continents – Europe and the U.S.- answer 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?
