General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) seminar
19 - 20 April 2018
In a few weeks, the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) comes into force, affecting companies from all over the world and resulting in the need for revision of compliance policies and business practices relating to the use and transfer of personal data, as well as in new risk assessment regarding the potential resulting liability.
The GDPR provides a unified legal framework, replacing the current patchwork of rules in the EU, and also introducing fines that actually hurt.
For US companies in particular, this situation is already proving to be a challenge. Confronted with the previous invalidation of the EU-US Safe Harbor Agreement, and coupled with the Privacy Shield Framework – which is under permanent scrutiny – US companies face testing times in terms of data protection and personal data transfers.
This one-day seminar will provide lawyers and in-house counsel from Europe, the USA and elsewhere in the world with an overview of these new rules that businesses will soon face and will offer best practices and possible solutions. From the new concepts in the GDPR to challenges and opportunities to big businesses.
As well as being one of the biggest markets, New York is home to many of the leading companies and has one of the biggest legal communities in the world. It is also quickly becoming the new place to be for tech companies, competing with Silicon Valley, and with its location represents a natural crossroad for business between Europe and the USA. Local attendees will have access to knowledge of experts coming from different jurisdictions and the opportunity to take advantage of several networking opportunities to create a truly global network of privacy/data protection experts.
This AIJA seminar is integrated in the 2018 Annual Conference of the Section of International Law of the American Bar Association.
