At long last, a compromise text is available and it looks like the four-year quest for a new data protection regime in the European Union is coming to a close. The Parliament's LIBE Committee will vote on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) text on Thursday, December 16, and everyone expects a full Parliament vote in early January after the holiday break.
But is this the General Data Protection Regulation we were expecting? What were the significant compromises reached late in the process? What are likely to be the big changes to which companies will have to adapt? What do you need to start doing right now in order to prepare? And is it true that children under 16 are going to need parental consent to use the Internet?
To answer all of these questions and more, IAPP VP of Research and Education Omer Tene assembled an all-star cast of EU data protection lawyers and privacy officers, all of them members of the Faculty for the IAPP's GDPR Comprehensive in February, for a free podcast you can listen to below. The discussion features Hogan Lovells Partner Eduardo Ustaran, Bird & Bird Partner Ruth Boardman and Pfizer head of EU privacy operations Cecilia Alvarez. Enjoy.
