GDPR - Are You Ready?:  Mapping the Road to GDPR and ePrivacy Compliance to Avoid Significant Financial Penalties

June 1, 2017
San Francisco



The EU’s new data protection regulation – known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) –  imposes a broad range of additional compliance obligations on organizations anywhere in the world that that collect or process EU residents’ personal data. This means any organization that employees EU residents, offers goods or services or monitors the behavior of individuals located in the EU or processes the personal data of EU residents on behalf of other businesses must comply with the GDPR.  Organizations that fail to comply could face penalties of up to €20 million or 4% of annual worldwide turnover. 

Also on the horizon are the EU’s proposed regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications (ePrivacy Regulation).  If adopted, the ePrivacy Regulation will bring communication privacy rules relating to cookies data and analytical data in line with the GDPR consent and anonymization rules.  The proposed implementation date and penalties track the GDPR’s.

With the May 25, 2018 implementation date just twelve months away, organizations should start taking immediate action to develop a coordinated organizational and technological response to address the new requirements. With 173 recitals and 99 Articles, organizing and implementing GDPR and ePrivacy compliance efforts in addition to the normal day-to-day activities is challenging for most organizations.  In this program, we will provide a roadmap on how to more efficiently prepare for and move toward GDPR and ePrivacy compliance. 

When you leave you will have a good understanding of: 

  • The GDPR and ePrivacy’s Key Privacy and Security Requirements
  • How to Plan and Prepare for GDPR and ePrivacy Compliance
  • The Steps Necessary to Become GDPR Compliant
  • The Technological Measures Companies May Need to Take to Secure Data and Respond to Data Subject Requests to Access, Rectify or Erase Personal Data

At the end of the presentation there will be a drawing for 60 minutes of free data privacy legal advice for each of the three companies selected.  

This session will be presented by Rob Chahin, Gretchen Ramos and Phil Zender.
