Pro: An agreement for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has (finally) been reached. Con: It’s more than 200 pages long─and that’s just the consolidated text. There are only so many hours in a day and you’re an enormously busy privacy professional. What to do?
You could read the whole thing, alone in a gloomy office. Or, you could reserve your spot at the IAPP’s 2016 Global Privacy Summit in Washington, D.C., this April, where you’ll have multiple opportunities to not only hear in-depth perspectives on the GDPR and its implications first-hand from those in the field, but also sound off on your own thoughts about the agreement with other privacy pros like yourself.
Not convinced yet? Let’s take a closer look at the Global Summit’s GDPR-focused content.
Join Fieldfisher’s Hazel Grant, CIPP/E and NCTM’s Rocco Panetta on Monday, April 4, lead this full-day training where you will be equipped with pragmatic strategies and essential information to ensure your organization’s seamless preparation for the GDPR’s forthcoming “seismic shift.” Key focal points include the differences between the new Regulation and the 1995 Directive and an understanding of the major changes expected in the books and on the ground. Note: Additional registration fee is required.
GDPR: The Big Picture
Promontory’s John Bowman, CIPP/E, the European Commission’s Bruno Genacarelli and Fieldfisher’s Olivier Proust, CIPP/E, will headline a Wednesday, April 6, panel that will study the historically evolving GDPR and its existence as less a set of privacy commandments and more so a charged “statement of intent” for the EU and beyond. The speakers will hone in on the negotiating dynamics between the Council and Parliament during trilogues; the process through which compromise was reached and the potential consequences that could pitfall companies who fail to fully grasp the new requirements of the GDPR.
Data Privacy in Life Sciences: Managing Challenges and Leveraging Opportunity
