Learn how to comply with GDPR, a broad regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states.

Data security, data privacy, and cybersecurity are critical issues for your company to consider in today’s business landscape. Data breaches from high profile companies, including law firms, generate worldwide headlines and can severely damage your business’s reputation. In certain industries, a patchwork of state and federal laws and regulations may cover your business, leading to compliance headaches.

This Financial Poise CYBERSECURITY & DATA PRIVACY 2018 series explores the various laws and regulations which govern businesses both in the US and abroad, as well as how to implement and enforce an information security policy to protect your company and limit any damage from a data breach.

The second episode of the series, Introduction to EU General Data Protection Regulation: Planning, Implementation, and Compliance, airs on October 22nd at 11:00 AM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Elizabeth Vandesteeg of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. She is joined by Daniel L. Farris of Fox Rothschild LLP, Jan Hertzberg of BKD LLP, and Cassandra Porter of Cognizant Technology Solutions.

The GDPR is a game-changer for anyone doing business or employing individuals in the EU. GDPR is a broad regulation that requires business to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. Countries that collect data on EU citizens will need to comply with strict new rules for protection of customer data by May 25, 2018. After that date, non-compliant organizations that collect data on EU citizens will face heavy fines. Learn more about the GDPR requirements and how your organization may meet those standards in this webinar.

The CYBERSECURITY & DATA PRIVACY 2018 webinar series is produced by Financial Poise.™ Future episodes in the series are "How to Build and Implement your Company's Information Security Program," airing on November 19th and "Data Breach Response: Before and After the Breach," airing on December 17th. Each episode airs at 11:00 AM CST. All episodes premiere live through West LegalEdCenter and then are made available on-demand.
