The new EU data protection rules – how does it affect me and my workplace?
This presentation will explore the realities behind the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), an EU law that comes into effect on 25 May 2018. For communicators – even those outside of the EU – the GDPR has significant impact on how you collect and store audiences’ data. We will look into some useful definitions, learn some of the language needed to approach the subject and formulate a basic road-map to compliance. Our speaker approaches the topic in a very practical way, with strong emphasis on down to earth risk management and explaining the “rules of the game” for GDPR.
