The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation: One Year Later

Posted on in Presentations

In May 2018 the European Union implemented the new General Data Protection Regulation, governing how EU personal data is processed both within and outside the EU. This is disrupting settled expectations regarding data privacy and security. It has spawned new laws and regulations in the US, changed privacy conceptions worldwide, and threated trans-Atlantic data transmission.

Learning Objectives:
1: Understand implementation challenges of the EU GDPR from first year’s experiences.
2: Review growing possibility of similar legislation being adopted in Asia, the US, and by the States.
3: Recognize the possible threat to the US-EU Privacy Shield agreement and the disrption therefrom

Familiarity with GDPR would be helpful.
