On March 21st, the San Diego and Imperial DEC will co-host a morning seminar devoted to understanding the new EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Speakers include: Isabelle Roccia, Sr. Policy Advisor, U.S. Mission to the EU; Michelle Sylvester, Policy Advisor, U.S. Department of Commerce, and Taylor Bloom, Senior IP Counsel at VERVE.
GDPR is an EU regulation that requires businesses to protect personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. The new requirements go into effect May 25, 2018 and extend the scope of EU data protection laws to all foreign companies processing data of EU residents. Non-compliance could cost companies dearly.
The seminar will help business professionals understand the proper compliance protocol, learn the process of registering under the bi-lateral Privacy Shield accord, and get suggestions on how to create a company compliance program to address the new GDPR requirements.
More information, including speakers and topics covered on the attached document. Please share this information with your colleagues and stakeholders. Advanced registration is required. Space is limited.
