After nearly two years from the approval of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in April 2016, we are entering the final stretch of its effective entry into force, May 2018. The GDPR, as it has been discussed in former sessions, introduces significant material changes on some of the core concepts of data protection, as for example consent or information duty. Companies face additional requirements and severe penalties for non-compliance. Even though the deadline to comply with the new requisites introduced by the GDPR approaches, there still many companies that hesitate on how to implement the new elements in a way that would not negatively affect their business or supposes disproportionate efforts. The new obligations and characteristics introduced by the GDPR entail not only changes in the legal policies but also in organizational strategies and technical developments. Therefore, the interpretation of the new elements introduced by the GDPR has to be performed from a perspective in which requisites and obligations are balanced with the business strategies. We'll discuss:
- New obligations of third parties and new requisites applicable to third parties contracts – how to deal with data processors negotiations and contracts under the GDPR new scenario.
- Main changes in the implementation of consents and information – how those changes could be articulated on your current data protection policies.
- New rights and data retention – how to deal with the answer to the new rights and data blockage/anonymization possibilities.
Hear from a team of specialists to get a deeper understanding on the interpretation in practice of the key elements of the GDPR that may be determinant on your businesses and compliance strategies.
