Webinar: GDPR Compliance Part II – Emerging Issues and Ongoing Challenges

Events / Tuesday, July 17, 2018

On Tuesday, July 17, 2018, BakerHostetler presented part two in our series addressing key compliance challenges and common questions concerning the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which took effect May 25, 2018.

Part I: GDPR Compliance and Beyond – What's Next?

Although May 25th has come and gone, most companies are still grappling with the practical realities of implementing their compliance programs. In almost all cases, many loose ends remain. As EU regulators issue new guidance and contemplate enforcement, businesses must be prepared to adapt their strategies to respond to new interpretations and changing circumstances.

Our panelists, including the GDPR-seasoned general counsel of a global technology provider and the leaders of BakerHostetler’s GDPR initiative, addressed:

  • Personal data breach response under the GDPR: Whether, when, how and whom to notify when confronted with a multinational incident.
  • Data Processing Agreements and “trickle-down" compliance issues: How companies that might not otherwise be subject to the GDPR find themselves contractually obligated to comply.
  • California’s new Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) signed into law June 18, 2018: How does it compare to the GDPR? Will it impose new privacy compliance burdens?
  • Data transfer mechanisms: Is the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework at risk?
  • Lessons learned: How in-house counsel are tackling these and other GDPR challenges.
