It is thought that the proposed EU Data Protection Regulation, arguably the most lobbied piece of European legislation, will be adopted by the end of 2015. It is therefore, imperative that businesses across all industries start to consider how to implement the requirements of the proposed Regulation to avoid facing potential fines of up to 5% of annual worldwide turnover. This legal quick hit presentation aims to provide practical guidance on how businesses can effectively and efficiently achieve this. In particular, the webinar will: (a) provide an update on the status of the proposed Regulation; (b) identify the ways in which businesses will be affected by the proposed Regulation; and (c) suggest practical ways of preparing for the Regulation.
