The "Perfect Storm": Are You Ready for Changes in EU Data Laws?

Why do you need to act urgently even if you feel your data handling is compliant? 2013 has already seen the frenetic pace of change from last year continue regarding new data laws and fines that will affect how all companies use data. The European Union is planning to dramatically amend its EU Data Protection Directive with a new Regulation. This will tackle recent developments in social media, marketing, mobile apps and cloud computing as well as deal with a perceived serious lack of compliance thus far. New major fines are starting to be imposed. This, along with the new Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs) for data processors that took effect on 1 January 2013, are just some of the recent changes businesses need to consider now.

Join Pillsbury as we take a closer look at the changes, including:

  • Why are the EU rules relevant to your business, even if not EU based?
  • Data transfer and key recent changes affecting transfers to the US
  • Why is your view of Safe Harbor, Model Clauses and BCRs likely out of date?
  • New E-Privacy “Cookie” Directive - Myths to De-bunk
  • New “Web Sheriff” for Social Media and Websites
  • Dramatically increased fine levels for breach of privacy laws in Europe
  • What actually is “consent”? Do you really have it?
  • What practical steps do you need to take right now?

RSVP by 15 March 2013. Please register for this complimentary presentation to receive log-in/dial-in information.
