Privacy leaders in the European Union have spent years preparing their organizations for the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Effective May 25, 2018, Canadian businesses must comply with the new regulations to do business with EU companies.

Whether or not your organization is impacted by the new regulation, the GDPR has set the new gold-standard for data privacy – one worth understanding as the world of data protection continues to evolve and the consequences for non-compliance are heightened.

This four-part webinar series will uncover the key questions and considerations for Canadian businesses as it relates to the impact and adaption of GDPR in Canada. These discussions will look beyond current GDPR standards to examine the future of privacy legislation and how organizations can equip themselves to adhere to a higher standard of data use and protection.

This webinar is the third in a series of 4. The previous 2 webinars were What You Need to Know About the GDPR: A Practical Guide for Professionals and Operationalizing GDPR within your Organization. The final webinar is on March 26. Each webinar is available to purchase for $99 or all 3 for $250.
