Privacy and data security continue to be important for all companies. Even where services are provided to customers indirectly, companies are increasingly requiring vendors to have strong privacy and data security procedures in place. This webinar will focus on addressing these privacy and data security requirements, which typically are included in a Security Addendum, as well as determining whether the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable. The GDPR will become enforceable on May 25, 2018 and companies which are not compliant with the GDPR may face significant penalties and enforcement. Provisions regarding compliance with the GDPR often are included in a Security Addendum or a related agreement.

What You Will Learn

  • Key definitions in U.S. federal and state laws and the GDPR.
  • When the GDPR and its requirements apply to a company.
  • What companies are requiring from their vendors and practical approaches for companies and vendors.
  • Penalties and enforcement.
