GDPR is a hot topic! The General Data Protection Regulation is the European Union’s new data protection and privacy regulation that became effective May 25, 2018. Although these EU rules were developed a continent away, don’t underestimate how they might affect you.

Privacy is a fundamental human right under the EU Charter. GDPR is intended to protect EU residents’ data privacy rights even outside the EU. Mandatory compliance may be closer than you think. A few states have introduced similar legislation and others are following suit. This free webinar will explain how to analyze when and how your institution will be affected by GDPR, and how it differs from your existing privacy rules.
