Countdown to the GDPR

By Hoge Fenton | 09.29.2017 | Speaking Engagements & Firm Events

JOIN US for a 3-part webinar series on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which goes into effect in just a few more months on Monday, May 25, 2018.

WHO: All companies that have personal information of EU citizens or that conduct business in the EU, regardless of their home country, must comply with the GDPR.

WHY: Because the GDPR mandates Accountability and demonstrating Compliance, and large monetary fines of up to EUR 20 million or 4% of global annual revenues will be imposed on companies for non-compliance.
