  1. Presentation (7:00 pm – 8:00 pm): GDPR Update



On May 25, 2018, per the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), organizations with business ties to the European Union needed to comply to GDPR standards or face fines. Many U.S.-based companies falsely believe that they cannot be impacted by GDPR because they don’t have a European office or customers in Europe. In reality, any company that has customers living in the U.S. with European citizenship or partners or visitors to their website from Europe need to be GDPR compliant. In this session we will:
– Review the GDPR hot buttons.
– Review what has happened in the GDPR world over the last 90 days.
– Discuss what companies can/should do moving forward.
