  • The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation Briefing March 22, 2018 | Portland, OR

    The U.S. Commercial Service is offering this seminar on prospective changes in the EU privacy requirements which will impact U.S. firms doing business in the market. Previously, the U.S.- EU Safe Harbor agreement provided some protections for U.S. firms, the newer bilateral Privacy Shield will be a key tool in developing a new compliance program.

     Beginning in May 2018, changes to the General Data Protection Regulation will impact virtually all U.S. exporters to Europe who will need to become compliant with the new EU regulations. Regardless of the company, the sector it operates in, or whether it actually sells anything in Europe, there will be new requirements and stiff fines in case of non-compliance.

     The GDPR applies to businesses that meet at least one of these criteria:

    • Are an employer in the European Union (EU).
    • Offers goods and services to individuals in the EU.
    • Monitors individuals’ behavior.
    • Processes personal data of EU individuals on behalf of other businesses.
    • Imports data from any EU country.

     What You’ll Gain From Attending:

     In-depth knowledge about GDPR requirements, including:

    • Accountability and transparency
    • Security and privacy
    • Communication with your customers and business partners
    • Discover how DGPR can impact your business
    • What processes and tools should be put in place
    • How to start the compliance process
    • How to turn GDPR into a business advantage
    • Learn about the Privacy Shield program and how to apply
