After four years in the review process, the General Data Protection Regulation (aka GDPR) was finally adopted in April 2016. It will become effective on 25 May, 2018.


Although European in nature, the GDPR will produce extraterritorial effects, even if the data processing is not done in Europe. If your company offers goods or services worldwide, including Europe, and processes data regarding people located in the EU, the GDPR will apply.


The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of the new regulation, processes and personal data management tools that must be implemented for your business to be GDPR compliant by May 2018.
