Why You Should Attend

Complying with laws governing privacy and cross-border data flows has never been more complicated.  U.S. companies can no longer effectively compete in today’s interconnected marketplace without the free flow of data across country borders.  That is why implementing appropriate programs to comply with new data protection laws emerging around the world has never been more important.  Companies in the U.S. that deal directly with consumers in the European Union (B2C), or offer services to European companies (B2B), had until May 25, 2018 to address the new European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) requirements, and deploy adequate cross-border data transfer mechanisms. 

This half-day boot camp – now in its third year – brings together  individuals charged with formulating their organization’s GDPR and global privacy compliance strategy.  It is for those who must implement the “nuts and bolts” of GDPR, and evaluate the right cross-border data transfer mechanisms.  What are the practical implications in choosing the Privacy Shield Framework over other options?  And how do you implement the procedural enhancements now required?  This program is for privacy practitioners within every organization – legal, compliance, IT security, and audit – hoping to gain insights and practical information about the ongoing conversation surrounding GDPR.

What You Will Learn

  • Gain insights on key substantive and procedural compliance recommendations for GDPR and Privacy Shield
  • What are the fundamental requirements for notice, consent, record of processing activities, and onward transfer requirements now mandated by GDPR and Privacy Shield?
  • Discuss practical considerations on how to set your organization’s compliance strategy, and whether to pursue certification for EU data transfers
  • Hear distinguished experts from both government and industry tell you what you should be doing to address cross-border data transfers
