What You Need to Know About the GDPR: A Practical Guide for Professionals
The Conference Board of Canada, November 8, 2018 at 11:00 AM ET
Live Webinar by The Conference Board of Canada
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 first in a series of 4 and is provided free of charge. The next 3 upcoming webinars will be available to purchase for $99 each or all 3 for $250. The dates are November 28, January 22 and March 26.
Are you familiar with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)? This 60-minute complimentary webinar on November 8th will equip privacy officers with a basic toolkit they need to educate other parts of their business about GDPR and the implications around it.
Do you have a team that needs to understand GDPR but isn’t in the privacy space? The webinar will also serve as an introduction for professionals who have a periphery interest or need to understand GDPR as it relates to their everyday work.
