Bill Roberts will present the webinar "GDPR and Manufacturers - Where We've Been, and Where We Are Now."

The General Data Protection Regulation (or “GDPR” for short) is a holistic set of data privacy requirements that address the life cycle of collection, use and disclosure of the “personal data” of European Union (“EU”) residents. Effective May 25, 2018, the GDPR has had wide-ranging implications for manufacturers across the globe - including in the United States. Generally speaking, a manufacturer may become subject to the GDPR in one of two ways: (i) by having an “establishment” in the EU (e.g. offices or a production facility) and/or (ii) by processing the personal data of EU residents (e.g. EU-based employees, marketing goods to EU residents). Once subject to GDPR, manufacturers must comply with a multitude of requirements addressing individual rights, vendors and subcontractors, data breaches, and privacy policies.

This webinar will provide an overview of the GDPR and its requirements and address lessons learned since the law came into effect. Specifically, it will cover: 

  • Determining if and how the GDPR applies to your business (and how to possibly avoid the GDPR all together); 
  • Key compliance obligations of the GDPR;
  • Establishing a GDPR compliance program; and
  • Relevant developments and lessons learned since May 2018
