SIM Austin May 2018 Meeting - Data Privacy & GDPR

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.

Data privacy is already a top concern for all companies, but the challenges are about to increase. On May 25th, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect. The GDPR applies to all companies worldwide that process personal data of European Union (EU) citizens. This means that any company that works with information relating to EU citizens, regardless of their physical location, will have to comply with the requirements of the GDPR. This effectively makes GDPR the first global data protection law. Join us to discuss the impact of GDPR on your organization and what you can do to prepare.
