Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr Hosts Cybersecurity CLE Event
When the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018, it will not only affect American businesses and organizations with operations in the EU, but it will also impact organizations with online marketing practices targeted at EU countries. Companies in the hospitality, travel, software services and e-commerce industries as well as institutions of higher education with overseas activities will be particularly affected and should prepare now for compliance with the regulation.
Speakers Alexander R. Bilus and Dr. Axel Freiherr von dem Bussche will:
• Provide an introduction to the GDPR and to whom it applies
• Outline practical steps to implement in order to be compliant
• Provide insights on working with regulators and handling data subject requests
• Highlight future EU data privacy regulations, including the ePrivacy Directive and cybersecurity laws
