"The Impact of GDPR on US Companies"

Bruno Haring
Cybersecurity and Privacy Director at PwC

Logo

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25, 2018, creating challenges for every organization doing business in the EU before, during and after the deadline. Any entity targeting or monitoring European citizens will need to comply with GDPR. As the largest change to data protection legislation in the last 20 years, GDPR gives regulators unprecedented power to impose fines, requiring widescale privacy changes across organizations - including US-based companies if they conduct business in Europe. The regulation requires a programmatic approach to data protection - like “SOX for privacy” - ┬áso you’ll need a defensible program for compliance and to prove you’re acting appropriately. Learn about the scope and requirements of GDPR and what is required to achieve compliance.
