EU General Data Protection Regulation | Do You Know Your Exposure?

March 20, 2018
Atlanta, GA



GDPR, or the ​​European General Data Protection Regulation is dreaded for two reasons: the shear depth and scope of it, and its razor-sharp teeth. The terrifying size of the fines makes GDPR a front burner issue for boards. Any company that does business in Europe, directly or indirectly, and that collects personal data is subject to the regulation. Don't miss this informative program, created jointly with our partner Protiviti.


GDPR discussion topics include:

  • What is GDPR exactly?
  • GDPR takes effect on May 25, 2018: Are you ready?
  • GDPR remediation accelerators: How companies can prioritize required GDPR remediation 
  • Ongoing compliance: How can you stay current with the GDPR and how it impacts your organization
