Synch & K&L Gates: Privacy and Data Protection – Bracing for the Impact of GDPR
03/20/2018 @ 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
EU’s General Data Protection Regulation goes into effect May 2018, are you prepared?
Privacy and data protection are top of mind for companies, investors, and regulators. The recent data breaches have given rise to increased focus on privacy and data protection in the U.S., as well as in other parts of the world. With the GDPR going into effect in May 2018, many companies are still not sure if they need to comply and if so what they need to do be in compliance. For those companies that fall under the long reach of the GDPR, noncompliance can carry a very hefty fine – the greater of 4% of worldwide revenue or €20,000,000. This presentation will provide a discussion of privacy and data protection laws in the US and EU and will provide an overview of the GDPR and its implications for US and foreign companies.
