Emerging GDPR Trends: Are You Prepared for the EU's New Privacy Law?

Join us for a discussion on how multi-national companies are preparing for the EU General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and the practical implications of implementing the necessary changes.

Featured speakers include: Brad Kulick, senior director, privacy policy, advertising, and analytics at Oath and members of Covington's Data Privacy and Cybersecurity practice.

Key topics will include:

  • What are the practical implications of implementation?

  • Extra-territorial application of the GDPR—who has to comply and what are the risks?

  • To consent or not to consent? Stricter rules will apply to the use of consent, but do you really need it?

  • How will companies respond to requests under the right to be forgotten, the right of data portability, and other individual rights?

  • Will fines break the bank?  What are the enforcement expectations after May 2018?

  • What is the draft ePrivacy Regulation and how does it relate to the GDPR?

Event Location: 
Garden Court Hotel, Terrace Room, 520 Cowper Street, Palo Alto, CA
