The European Union has overhauled its data privacy regime, and companies have only 18 months to achieve compliance with the EU’s brand-new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Think you don’t need to worry about the GDPR because you’re a U.S. company? Think again.

  • GDPR will have an unprecedented reach to non-EU companies targeting or monitoring EU consumers.
  • GDPR will have particular repercussions for digital business models, including interest-based advertising and consumer profiling.
  • GDPR will expand the obligations of service providers, changing the allocation of risk between customers and providers and requiring a review of all data processing and cloud contracts.
  • GDPR will affect not only your global data privacy compliance program, but may affect your products and services as well.
  • And with penalties of up to EUR 20 million or 4% of a company’s global annual turnover, you can’t afford not to prepare.
