Join the live webinar on March 29th with top global data privacy lawyers.

In May 2018, the EU will implement its new data privacy regulation, called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This new regulation will have major implications for any company with employees residing in the EU, regardless of the employees' citizenships. The GDPR enhances data protection for employees and carries substantial penalties for non-compliance. The May 2018 compliance deadline is on the horizon and it’s important for companies to understand the GDPR’s impact on their HR departments' practices.

Topics will include:

  • What is the definition of “Personal Data” under GDPR?
  • How does the GDPR apply to HR specifically?
  • What policies and procedures need to be revised or created to achieve compliance with the GDPR?
  • What is the update on data transfers to the US and Privacy Shield certification?
  • What are the penalties of non-compliance with the GDPR?
