In May 2018, the EU will implement its new data privacy regulation, called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This frankly onerous new regulation will have major implications for any company with goods and services that are directed to individuals in the EU. The GDPR strengthens data protection for all EU-based individuals, if the business is not established in the EU and there are substantial penalties for non-compliance.

Join top global data privacy lawyers from Morgan Lewis - Ezra D. Church (US), Pulina Whitaker (UK), and Dr. Axel Spies (DE) - as they discuss:

  • What is the definition of “Personal Data” under GDPR?
  • How does the GDPR apply to technology businesses 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?
