European Privacy Invasion (GDPR) One Year In, California Privacy Takeover (CCPA) Six Months Out
Start Date: 5/21/2019Start Time: 8:00 AM
End Date: 5/21/2019End Time: 10:00 AM
Event Description:
When GDPR became effective one year ago, on May 25, 2018, it triggered a seismic wave of data protection compliance activity.  Companies around the world scrambled to determine whether and how to comply.  Whiteford, Taylor & Preston is pleased to host a panel of international privacy professionals – including Netherlands-based privacy law specialist Joyce de Jong of Audittrail and Gabriela Zanfir-Fortuna, a thought leader in transatlantic privacy – for an in-depth discussion of how implementation of GDPR has played out in actual practice.
A stream of guidelines from the European Data Protection Board, enforcement actions and decisions by various Supervisory Authorities, and national laws adopted at the EU Member State level have impacted the interpretation of, and compliance with, the GDPR.  Questions the panel will address include:
How have unsuspecting companies been caught in the wake of GDPR?
How likely is it that your company is directly affected by GDPR?
How can GDPR impact M&A transactions?
How have some companies avoided GDPR risk by changing their processes and practices?
What companies have been investigated or fined pursuant to GDPR in Year One?
Importantly, the panel will provide insights into the new era of global data protection that GDPR has spawned, including enactment of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which, in turn, has encouraged a flood of stricter U.S. state privacy law initiatives and may ultimately compel enactment of a comprehensive federal U.S. data protection law.
