Discover the increasing risks, obligations, and steep fines facing organizations who gather and process personal data from individuals in the U.S. and the European Economic Area (EEA).*

The GDPR went into effect on the 25 of May 2018; applicable to the 28 Member-States, plus members of the EEA - the GDPR also affects U.S.-based companies that transfer personal data from the EEA to the States.

Your business must establish watertight consent management processes (this responsibility typically lies with CIOs) and effective data rights management systems (in contrast, CMOs tend to be tasked with this duty) to not only guarantee your institution remains compliant, but also ensure you don't lose your most valuable asset - data. Guidance will be provided on data protection in the U.S., including obligations on the data controller & the consent of data subjects; rights to access personal data or object to its collection; and, security requirements.

We will also cover cookies & spam; third-party data processing; and, of course, transferring data international (i.e., GDPR compliance). This webinar will also detail the enforcement powers, as well as sanctions and remedies, of the U.S. regulator.

We will discuss the patchwork system of U.S. data protection legislation (see below for a list of prominent federal privacy laws). Although there is no comprehensive, national law regulating the collection and use of personal data, there are many federal and state laws and regulations, as well as governmental agency guidelines, related to data collection and personal privacy.

Many of these laws overlap (and, often contradict each other!), and some apply to particular types of information(i.e., financial or health information of e-communications). Further, although broad consumer protection laws are not explicitly designed to protect privacy, many have been used to prohibit unfair or deceptive abusive acts or practices related to disclosing personal information.
