This lesson will be addressing the specifics on how American businesses and healthcare organizations need to quickly get on the task of compliance with the European Union's (EU) new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In addition, this webinar will address how to best accomplish compliance with GDPR and also understand how to assess risks and exposure specifically to American organizations and healthcare.
We will be going through a breakdown of what policies are necessary for compliance, new required consent forms, right of erasure, EU definition of sensitive data, duties of the Data Protection Office, and much more relating to how data is collected and the responsibilities of the American organization.
To continue to do business in the EU, most companies will have to implement additional privacy protections and adopt end-to-end data protection strategies.
Why should you Attend: Will GDPR Affect Your US Based Business?
The Answer is YES!
Does GDPR apply for US companies already compliant with the EU-US Privacy Shield? YES!
Are you aware of the ramifications for non-compliance?
The implications of GDPR for US companies or healthcare organizations who collect, maintain or process personal data of EU citizens will be significant - and compliance is required.
As many U.S. companies have recently discovered, not only does GDPR apply to American companies, doing business within the EU is likely to be extremely costly for companies that do not comply with GDPR.
