GDPR 101 (Self-Study)


Effective May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) subjected a plethora companies to its somewhat onerous provisions. While many data privacy experts have focused on the GDPR, individual European Union Member State laws will also impact U.S. companies that collect or transfer data of EU citizens.

The GDPR was designed to enhance data protections for EU residents and to provide a framework for company usage of personal data of those who reside in the European Union, including non-citizens. It comes with hefty penalties for non-compliance. Fines for violating its provisions can run as high as 20 million euros ($22 million) or 4 percent of total global revenues, whichever is higher!

Hence, the overall goal is to explain key provisions, provide compliance suggestions and address the recent case law against such companies as Google and Facebook.
