How to Tackle the GDPR, California CPA and Today’s Growing List of Privacy Regulations
30 April 2019, 4 p, CET
The GDPR changed the way people and businesses think about privacy. With its extraterritorial scope and high noncompliance fines, it forced companies to implement ongoing, operational and privacy-focused initiatives by design into their businesses, changing the way companies interact with customers, employees and vendors.
Since its enforcement date, the regulation has been a catalyst for new data protection laws across the globe: including groundbreaking new regulations in California, Brazil, India and others, meaning global businesses will need to reassess their privacy compliance across a growing matrix of regulatory requirements. In this session, we will discuss the current state of the global privacy environment and how companies can build programs that address the overarching requirements of various data protection laws.
