For global companies, the GDPR’s May 25 effective date is not a finish line but the beginning of an ongoing compliance process. It is therefore just as important as ever to steer clear of common pitfalls and misconceptions surrounding the regulation: do individuals have an absolute right to be forgotten? Should data privacy impact assessments be performed on all current processes? Must consent be explicit for the processing of personal data? And will there really be fines of €20 million or 4% of global annual turnover for non-compliance?

Join an international team of Morrison & Foerster privacy experts—Miriam Wugmeister, Christine Lyon, Alex van der Wolk, and Alja Poler De Zwart—for a Data Protection Masterclass webinar that will tackle these and other common GDPR myths and how to avoid them. Topics we plan to address include:

  • Data processors’ obligations,
  • The DPO requirement,
  • Biometric data,
  • Data portability,
  • Children’s privacy,
  • Outsourcing and vendor agreements, and
  • Fines, among others.
