Plan to join data privacy and data protection expert Jonathan Armstrong for a ½ day workshop on the upcoming General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) in the EU, which goes live on May 25, 2018. Armstrong, a partner at Cordery in London will join us on Tuesday 10, from 9-12 at South Texas College of Law to provide the most recent information on what you can expect from GDPR and more importantly how to prepare for its go live.
In the EU personal data can only be gathered under strict conditions and for legitimate purposes only – those who collect and manage personal information must protect it from misuse and must respect certain rights. GDPR will apply not only to businesses which are actually located in an EU Member State, but also, to businesses located completely outside the EU. This will be the case where:
- Either, a business processes the personal data of EU residents and offers them goods and services, irrespective of whether payment is required; or,
- Where the processing by a business relates to the monitoring of the behaviour of EU residents in so far as their behaviour takes place within the EU.
This means if you have any operations in the EU or UK, GDPR will apply to you. Moreover, data privacy will become the norm as businesses will have to incorporate data protection safeguards into their products and services from the beginning. The practical upshot is that data controllers will have to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures for data processing, in order to implement data-protection principles such as data minimization.
GDPR created a series of new Privacy Rights, all of which you must comply with. They include:
· Right to be forgotten;
· Right to object;
· Right to portability; and
· Right not to be profiled.
Armstrong will highlight steps you can take to comply with these requirements.
