GDPR Conference

The EU’s GDPR -- Impacts and Opportunities for New England Businesses

2018 GDPR

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), which becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018, already is having a major business impact on New England organizations doing business in Europe.  Organizations of all types – large and small, for-profit and non-profit – are facing new, significant regulatory compliance risks and operational challenges arising out of the GDPR.  At the same time, however, the GDPR is also creating new business opportunities for organizations, as they offer expertise, technical tools, and even market differentiation based on their GDPR sophistication.  This one-day program will address the major business risks – and opportunities – for New England organizations doing business in Europe.

The Center is partnering with Pierce Atwood and the IAPP to bring this one day conference on Friday, June 1, 2018 for only $295. Registration is open to all (lawyers and non-lawyers). Seating is limited, register now!
