To Prepare or Not to Prepare: What Steps Should Companies be Taking before the GDPR is Finalized?

Brought to You by TRUSTe

Broadcast Date: Thursday, December 10, 2015
 
New research commissioned by TRUSTe reveals a stark divide between businesses who are unaware of the pending EU Regulation and a more informed group who are actively preparing for the GDPR even before it’s finalized. Of the 50 percent of companies in the U.S., France, Germany, and Great Britain who are aware of the GDPR, 65 percent have already started taking action, and 21 percent have set aside in excess of half a million dollars to address the changes.
 
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is slated to become law by the end of 2015 and will mandate that all companies with EU customers follow the new rules wherever they’re based. As the trialogue negotiations reach their final stages, what are companies actually doing to prepare? What steps should you be taking, if any, at this stage?
 
Join us for this free virtual discussion to hear how companies like yours are dealing with the uncertainty, and gain practical insight from seasoned practitioners on future-proofing your business in light of these EU regulatory changes. A copy of the report can be found here.
