The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a new European Union data privacy regime, will become effective on May 25, 2018.  Designed primarily to provide greater protection for the personal data of individuals in the EU, the GDPR imposes a host of new obligations on both “controllers” and “processors” of such data.  Additionally, the GDPR calls for large penalties when companies fail to comply with these new obligations.  While many U.S. companies already have begun the process of bringing themselves into compliance, the GDPR has such a long reach that it encompasses many U.S. companies that would not ordinarily expect to be subject to European data privacy laws.  This session, led by Gibson Dunn privacy and cybersecurity attorney Ryan Bergsieker, will describe the global scope of the GDPR, explain the obligations the GDPR imposes, and provide practical advice for companies transitioning to the new regime.
